Bayern Munich's Luca Toni Set To Join Roma In January - Report

The saga surrounding Bayern Munich striker Luca Toni is set to conclude, with the towering forward joining Roma, according to TMW.

The parties have only agreed on the situation in the last few hours, and the 32-year-old will return to Italy, in the hope of securing a spot on Marcello Lippi's Italian national side that will travel to South Africa next year.

There was much conjecture and speculation as to where the World Cup winner would end up, with a host of teams across Europe wanting to sign the former Palermo and Fiorentina striker.

Toni will be officially confirmed as a Roma player when the January transfer window opens.

Having been told that he was not a major part of the Bavarian giants' plans going forward into the future - and receiving less game time - president Uli Hoeness is allowing Toni to leave for free.

Toni will be teaming up with World Cup winning team-mate, and good friend, Francesco Totti, who allegedly rang Toni to see what his intentions were about coming to the Eternal City.
