The Chievo Verona midfielder joins AS Roma on a three year transfer said to cost $4.6 million. He will keep company with club talisman Daniele De Rossi, Miraljem Panic, and Simone Perotta in the midfield.
Roma is owned by Thomas DiBenedetto, an American businessman and one of the partners at Fenway Sporting Group, who own the Boston Red Sox as well as Liverpool. Bradley’s move to AS Roma is a shrewd move, not just because the American midfielder is a good fit in the Roma midfield, but it also represents the owners larger vision of marketing Roma to the USA.
DiBenedetto already has a proposal in place which will see Roma tie up with a Boston based soccer academy that will train over 8,000 kids in five states.
