[Monchi reveals why Roma snubbed Daley Blind offer] We talked with Jonathan Silva even before the window opened, in expectation of Emerson leaving. Blind was offered to us three or four days ago, but we decided he was not the right player, even from an economic point of view, which is important.
[Roma were reportedly in danger of losing their highly-rated goalkeeper Alisson as rumours of a late bid from Liverpool spread. However, Monchi denied claims that an offer was made] No, no, Now let me rest for a week before we start talking about the next transfer period.

[Roma director Monchi mourns Davide Astori’s tragic death] I know the suffering, what you feel, the pain you feel because, unfortunately, I experienced it in person with the unfortunate Antonio Puerta. I wish a lot of courage to his family, his friends and his companions, to Fiorentina and to Italian football. RIP Davide Astori

[Roma sporting director Monchi insists Alessandro Florenzi has not been issued with an ultimatum as the club attempt to meet the in-demand Italy international’s wage demands] We have not moved forward much. It’s a difficult negotiation because he is a great player. I think that Roma have made a strong offer to him, a very good offer, but I understand that he too has his thoughts and requests. I am confident, but not much has changed in the last few days. There will never be an ultimatum, Alessandro is a son of this club. What will happen will happen, I am fighting every day to get the renewal done and I have faith. But we are still a little apart
[Justin Kluivert, Davide Santon and Javier Pastore headline the other arrivals with sought-after Brazil shot-stopper Alisson appearing increasingly likely to stay] We have not received any offers, so it’s difficult to have an idea about figures if there has not been any offer. Now Alisson will go on holiday and he will join up with the squad after that
