Bryan Reynolds (19) is officially a Roma player. He is a fast-footed right back, whose engagement would not have been too interesting if he had not already agreed on a transfer to Juventus at the beginning of January. The talented American football player, a member of the USA U23 selection, was about to sign a contract with the Italian champion, but then sudden complications arose.
The Old Lady has already brought two players from outside the European Union this season, so the only option was for the football player to be forwarded to Benevento on loan, which the player did not like. Roma reacted quickly, sent a stronger offer to Dallas' address, and kidnapped the player.
Although there are different sources regarding the details of the transfer. The latter says that a six-month loan has been agreed, with a mandatory purchase of 7,000,000 euros at the end of the season and 15 percent of the next sale.
Transfer and salary details
The player has a contract for four and a half years with an annual salary of 800,000 euros. It is mentioned that the transfer based on the bonus could increase by another 4,000,000 euros. Reynolds arrived in Rome yesterday, and his official promotion at the club is scheduled for tonight at 6 p.m.
The American football player should ideally fit into the system of Paul Fonseca because he is a right-back with distinct offensive characteristics. Reynolds will thus become the second American, since defensive midfielder Michael Bradley, to wear a Roma jersey.
Roma proved to be very capable on the market, considering that the negotiations officially lasted for two months and started in November. However, Juventus also made a serious mistake here, considering that they eventually gave up because they did not want to equalize Roma's offer.
The failure for the Old Lady could become even bigger, if Reynolds, who is considered one of the most talented players in the United States, proves to be the right move of Roma and someone who is able to make a difference on the pitches of the Italian Serie A.
Reynolds started at the Dallas Football Academy, and he made his debut in the MLS in May 2019, when he was less than 18 years old. In the past two years, he collected a total of 29 appearances in the professional league there.
Now he will have a great opportunity to show that he is a great talent and that he is in Roma with the reason. So, as we said above, The talented American football player, a member of the USA U23 selection, was about to sign a contract with the Italian champion, but then sudden complications arose.
