Nuno Andre Coelho
Braga to Roma (Loan)?
AS Roma has made an official attempt to loan Nuno Andre Coelho in January. Roma’s defensive options are slim, and they currently have the worst defensive record in the league, despite sitting at seventh in Serie A. Now, in an attempt to bolster its defense, Roma has turned to long-term target Nuno Andre Coelho. Coelho has enjoyed a recent run of form after an injury to Douglao granted him much-needed playing time. His performances have merited being pre-drafted for Portugal’s upcoming friendly against Gabon, where he may very likely debut. The deal Roma proposed is a loan beginning in January and lasting to the end of the season, with an option to buy. His release clause is set at 12 million euros, and Braga will not let him go for much less than that.
