A.S. Roma Complete Signing Bojan Krkic From Barcelona

AS Roma have completed their signing of Barcelona youngster Bojan Krkic, but this agreement has a bit of a twist: The Italian side have signed the twenty-year-old for €12m, but Barcelona may buy him back at the end of two years for €13m. If Roma want to sign the attacker permanently, they'll have to pay an additional €28 million -- a grand total of €40m. In other words, it seems the Catalan side are paying Roma €1m to play Bojan.

So, essentially, this is a long-term loan with a large payout clause. Not what Roma are used to doing, perhaps, but since appointing Luis Enrique as manager, the former Barcelona B coach made it clear that Bojan was his top target. It seems this was the only way the new mister could land his man. However, Bojan himself doesn't seem thrilled with the idea, stating in his press conference, "Returning doesn't depend on me, as it all depends on how I play and what I can prove."

Sounds like a man happy to be donning the Giallorossi kit for two years.
