Roma have invested heavily in terms of the player transfers in the summer, but they have not been exactly rewarded in the same way that they would have been hoping for. At nearly the half stage of the season, Roma are not in a great position to challenge for the title, although they are very close to qualifying for the Champions League once again.
A stunning performance from substitute Bojan Krkic helped Roma record a 2-0 win over Novara. Their two match losing streak had put a lot of pressure on manager Luis Enrique, but this latest victory against Novara brings some much-needed relief. Enrique had Bojan Krkic to thank for the victory, with the former Barcelona striker playing an important role after coming on as a substitute. Former Ligue 1 midfielder Miralem Pjanic set up the impressive goal for Bojan Krkic, who had to just tap in the lobbed pass from the midfielder.
Roma are very close to signing Bojan Krkic on a permanent transfer from Barcelona. Reports emerging from Spain have stated that the Spain Under-21 international has already agreed to join Roma yet the side's sporting director, Sabatini has confirmed this is not yet the case.
"In Spain they say Bojan is a Roma player," Sabatini told Sports Network.
"It's very close and very realistic but the deal has not yet been finalised although we hope to do so on the coming days."
Barcelona have been dealt with low as striker Bojan will now be missing the rest of the season due to injury, according to the Free Bet website.
Bojan was stretchered off during Barcelona's 3-1 Primera Division victory over bottom club Almeria at Camp Nou, and it has been revealed that he has ruptured knee ligaments.
Initial tests indicate that the injury will keep Bojan out for between six and eight weeks, which will probably rule him out for the remainder of the season.
Barcelona forward Bojan Krkic has said that he is inspired by Karim Benzema a little. Benzema struggled to assert himself in the early stages of his Madrid career, having moved from Lyon for around £30 million in 2009, but an injury to regular frontman Gonzalo Higuain gave him his chance and he has bagged ten goals in his last eight games.
Liverpool are interested in buying Barcelona forward Bojan Krkic for £17million. Publication Sport comments that despite the Merseyside club adding two strikers in the January transfer window in the form of Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez, they remain on the hunt for attacking talent.
As a result, they have identified the Barca product as a potential addition, and are willing to spend up to €20 million (£17m) to prise the 20-year-old from the Nou Camp.
Pep Guardiola has said that he is not concerned about the poor form of Bojan Krkic. The young Spanish international was awarded with the number nine jersey at the Camp Nou during the summer and also rewarded with a contract extension through the summer of 2015.
However, Bojan Krkic has managed just three goals in 16 appearances this season for the Blaugrana, and has failed to produce his best form in much of his outings.
Bojan Krkic has signed a new contract extension with Barcelona. The 20-year-old agreed a three-season addition to his former deal with the Spanish champions, committing his future to the club and warding off interest from other interested parties from Serie A and the Premier League.
Speaking to Sport after confirming the contract, the Spanish Football international said he hoped to develop his game further under the stewardship of coach Pep Guardiola.
Bojan Krkic has made a successful return from injury and could feature in the upcoming Barcelona games. The Catalan boss Josep Guardiola decided to play an experimental team against a tough looking Russian side Rubin Kazan. The Spanish coach simply knew that his side were going to the next round with flying colours as they were to stay at the top of the points table no matter what the result was. Josep Guardiola decided to give the “European” experience to the young guns of Barcelona and 10 reserve team players featured during the game at Nou Camp.
Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has said that he didn't lose the faith in Bojan Krkic even though the striker had some difficult times. Bojan was on target twice in Barca's 8-0 away win against Almeria in the Spanish Primera Division. He had been struggling for goals at the start of the season but has now began to find the opposition's net with regularity, making Guardiola pleased.
