With an European powerhouse as a target, Roma fan-favorite Patrik Schick is purportedly working out for his future.
The 21-year-old joined the club earlier this year from Sampdoria, on a loan weighing around €5 million. The forward was tempted to stay in Italy despite the mesmerising offers from Premier League giants Tottenham and Chelsea.
The former Sampdoria man spoke about what he wishes to Czech magazine Reporter, and revealed: “I hope to be able to transfer in a few years to an even better club, where I will be paid even better. There are a few clubs, such as Real Madrid, Barcelona or Manchester United.”
Nevertheless, the forward is awed by the quality of the facilities at the Giallorossi. He could only salvage 15 minutes of play since moving to Roma, owing to the multiple petty injuries he suffered.
The youngster further proclaimed: “When I saw the training centre, I realised that I’d be getting the best here. Here there are perfect pitches, the best systems for recovering, the gym, plus the nutritionists.”
Regardless, the Italian side is making preparations for a permanent deal with the forward by the upcoming summer by paying an additional €9m, with a further €8m in add-ons, albeit Schick’s interest in moving to another top club.
