Roma only have 50-50 chance of signing Brazilian defender Lucio according to his agent. Besides Roma is reportedly struggling in financial matters just like what Lazio been through last season. Can the Romans survive??

Here's the news:

[size=2] Lucio's Roma switch in doubt Friday 27 June, 2003


Italian side Roma only have a 50-50 chance of signing Brazilian defender Lucio according to his agent.

The capital side have agreed a 10m fee with the German club but personal terms are proving to be a major obstacle.

"No agreement has been reached yet," agent Sandro Becker told radio station ‘Retesport’ on Friday.

"There is a difference between what we want and what they are offering. At the moment there is only a 50-50 chance of the move going through."

There were reports that Lucio was looking to receive 3.5m a season, the same as Francesco Totti, but Becker has rubbished that claim.

"Lucio is disappointed with what is being said today," Becker continued. "The stories are not true. He wants a salary which reflects his worth. His demands are not absurd by any means."

Becker also poured cold water on reports that the deal had hit problems because of a supposed move by Milan for the 25-year-old.

"We are serious people," he added. "At the moment we are only dealing with Roma because Lucio really wants to move there and play alongside Emerson."

The defender currently earns around 1.5m a year with the Bundesliga outfit and has declared that he will not accept a lower figure than that. [/size]
