Roma sign Hector Moreno
Veteran Mexico defender Hector Moreno has transferred from PSV Eindhoven to Roma, becoming the first signing of new Giallorossi sporting director Monchi. Roma says Moreno signed a four-year contract. The transfer fee was reportedly €6.3million. The 29-year-old Moreno has appeared 79 times for Mexico and helped PSV to the Dutch title in 2016. Moreno previously spent four years in Spain, making more than 100 appearances for Espanyol.
Emerson suffers ACL injury
Roma have announced Emerson Palmieri will require surgery after sustaining an anterior cruciate ligament injury on the last day of the Serie A season. Defender Palmieri went down in the first half of Roma's 3-2 win over Genoa in Francesco Totti's farewell appearance for the club and left the field on a stretcher. The 22-year-old had been named in a young Italy squad by Gianpiero Ventura for an upcoming friendly against San Marino, recieving his first international call.
Badelj suffers hip injury
Fiorentina and Croatia midfielder Milan Badelj was substituted 16 minutes into the league encounter at home with Sassuolo. He felt pain in his adductor muscle, and will undergo an MRI scan to confirm the extent of this injury.
Dybala and Mandzukic passed fit
Paulo Dybala and Mario Mandzukic have both been passed fit to take their places in the Juventus team for Wednesday's Coppa Italia final against Lazio. The forwards had been doubts for the game due to muscle injuries but are included in Massimiliano Allegri's starting lineup as Serie A leaders Juve seek to clinch the first trophy of a possible treble.
Mandzukic suffers back injury
Mario Mandzukic is listed as doubtful for the Italian Cup final against Lazio on May 17. The Juventus striker has a problem in his lower back after sufering the injury during his team's 3-1 defeat to Roma on Sunday. Mandzukic has become a key player for Juventus this season, playing on the left wing in their 4-2-3-1 system.
Khedira out of Coppa Italia final
Sami Khedira is expected to miss the Coppa Italia final due to injury, Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri has confirmed. The Germany international suffered a hamstring problem just 10 minutes into the Champions League semi-final tie with Monaco on Tuesday.
Khedira insisted afterwards that the injury was "nothing serious" and it was hoped that he would be ready for the Coppa showdown with Lazio on May 17. Allegri, however, says the midfielder will be sidelined for that game and the next two Serie A matches against Roma and Crotone. He is also a doubt for the last league game of the season against Bologna and, crucially, the Champions League final against Real Madrid on June 3.
Marchisio to miss Roma match
Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio will miss Sunday's match against Roma. Marchsio sat out training today because of muscle soreness in his left thigh. "His condition will be evaluated from tomorrow until Sunday in view of the upcoming Coppa Italia Final on Wednesday," said Juventus in a statement.
Dzeko out of Roma-Juve clash
Roma striker Edin Dzeko will miss Sunday's crucial Serie A clash with Juventus due to a calf injury. The fixture represents Roma's last chance to try to reel in Juve as Massimiliano Allegri's side will secure the Scudetto if the hosts fail to win. Dzeko's 27 league goals have helped the Giallorossi cling onto the coattails of the Turin giants all season. However, he will not play at the weekend after picking up a calf strain, which is expected to take 10 days to heal.
Badelj to miss two weeks
Fiorentina will be without midfielder Milan Badelj for around two weeks after the Croatian international picked up a thigh injury. Badelj lasted just 16 minutes against Sassuolo on Sunday and tests confirmed a left adductor injury. He is set to miss Saturday's match against Lazio and Fiorentina's game at Napoli game the following week.
Muntari's one-match suspension overturned
The one-match ban Sulley Muntari received after protesting against racial abuse from fans has been overturned by the Italian Football Federation. Muntari complained to the referee about racial abuse during Pescara's 1-0 defeat Cagliari last weekend, but then walked off the pitch in protest after being shown a yellow card and was subsequently sent off.
Strootman given two-match ban
Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman has been handed a two-match ban for simulation. On Wednesday evening the league's Disciplinary Commission found Strootman guilty of "serious unsporting behaviour." Several replays clearly show the former Manchester United target took a dive to win his side a penalty in Sunday's Rome derby. Strootman will now miss crucial games against AC Milan and Juventus.
Double blow for Roma
Roma could be without Federico Fazio for their trip to Milan next weekend after the defender suffered a thigh injury in Sunday's defeat to Lazio. The 30-year-old Argentine international was replaced by Diego Perotti in the 64th minute. His teammate Antonio Rudiger, who was sent off in the 93rd minute for a tackle, also faces a spell on the sidelines due to a suspension.
