Despite tabloid claims in Italy and England to the contrary, MLSSoccer.com is reporting that AS Roma and USA international midfielder Michael Bradley will not leave the Serie A giant during the January transfer window. In recent weeks, the central midfielder has been linked to Cardiff City, Fulham and Southampton in England, Chievo Verona and Genoa in Italy and Bayer Leverkusen in Germany.
According to the report’s sources, Roma coach Rudi Garcia has no intention of letting the American go, and Bradley does not want to leave, either. The 26-year-old has made nine appearances for Roma since recovering from an ankle injury earlier in the season, starting four times. Bradley and the Giallorossi return from winter break on Sunday in a top-of-the-standings clash against Serie A leader Juventus in Turin.
