Former Barcelona striker Bojan Krkic could be set for a return to the Camp Nou in the summer after it was revealed that Italian club Roma are looking at the possibility of sending the striker back to his hometown club.
Former Barcelona striker Bojan Krkic has said that he is extremely surprised with the progress made by AC Milan midfielder Kevin Prince Boateng.
The Ghanaian midfielder is regarded as one of the best players at AC Milan, which comes as a surprise for the AS Roma striker. Bojan Krkic joined the Italian club in the summer after coming through the youth academy at Barcelona.
Roma paid a transfer fee of £13 million for the striker, who is expected to be one of the best in the future. For now, the Spaniard is more surprised about the progress made by Kevin Prince Boetang at AC Milan.
Bojan Krkic has given a major boost for Roma after becoming fit in time for the weekend match against Atalanta. Former Barcelona striker Bojan Krkic has not been in training for Roma due to slight knock suffered in the knee during the training session on Friday.
He was expected to miss the match against Atlanta as a result of this minor injury, but he has made sufficient recovery in order to be included in the squad that was set to face Atlanta. This is a major match for Roma given that they are fighting to qualify for the Champions League this season.
Bojan Krkic’s move from Barcelona to AS Roma in the summer has been met with intrigue by many within the game. It is understood that the deal included a buy back clause for Barcelona should they wish to bring back the youngster in the future.
Bojan Krkic was one of the scorers for Roma in the match against Inter Milan. This was one of the most memorable matches for Roma in recent seasons after they beat former Champions league winners Inter Milan at the home ground 4-0.
Roma striker Bojan Krkic has said that he choose Roma because he loved to play for the Italian team. He also said that he had a number of offers from various countries including England.
It is thought that clubs like Tottenham and Chelsea had shown an interest in the striker, but Bojan Krkic decided in the end to move to Italy. He also said that the offers from Chelsea, Tottenham and PSG were much better on a financial level than the one offered by Roma. However, the chance to play regular football with an Italian team was simply too good to turn down by the former Barcelona striker.
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.
