Guillermo Burdisso Agrees To Join Roma - Report

The younger brother of Nicolas will move to Italy after agreeing to leave relegated Rosario Central...
There will be at least one Burdisso wearing Roma colours next season as Nicolas' brother Guillermo agreed to move to the Italian capital from Rosario Central.

The 22-year-old Burdisso has impressed since breaking into the Central first team in 2009, but could not avoid the Canallas dropping into the Second Division at the end of the 2010 Clausura.

Ramon Diaz's San Lorenzo has been hot on the trail of the centre-back, but ESPN Deporte report that the younger Burdisso chose Roma out of respect for his former club.

"There was the possibility of San Lorenzo, that is a great club; but I had given my word to the directors of Rosario Central to not play in another shirt in Argentina," explained the youngster, who also has one cap for the Albiceleste.

Guillermo is expected in Rome in the next few days. It is still unknown however whether big brother Nico will join him; the Inter man spent last year on loan in the capital, but has suffered through extensive wranglings between the two rivals over who will have the Argentina international in their squad for the coming season.
