Negredo open to Roma move

Real Madrid striker Alvaro Negredo would be interested in a summer move to Roma, according to the player's agent.

The Spanish striker's future, along with fellow Bernabeu front-man Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, is seemingly over following the Madridistas' expensive close-season captures of Karim Benzema, Kaka, Cristiano Ronaldo and Xabi Alonso.

The 23-year-old bagged 32 league goals in 70 outings for Almeria after arriving from Real's B team in 2007, with the youngster's form leading him to be linked with Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur in the past.

Bundesliga outfit Stuttgart have also been tipped to sign the striker, having seen Huntelaar turn down the opportunity of a move to Germany.

However, Serie A side Roma have now joined the race for Negredo, with Real believed to be keen on securing around £15 million for the forward's services to help balance their books.

And the player's representitive, Alejandro Camano, has confirmed the front-man would be interested in a switch to Italian shores.

"We have heard talk of Roma from the media," he told Radio Radio.

"Right now I am in England for negotiations with four or five clubs, but I have not yet heard from anyone at the Giallorossi.

"Roma are a big club and they have Francesco Totti, one of the best players in the world. It would be an honour for Negredo to play with a team of this level."
