Following the international break, by which Acerbi spoke out in an ill-mannered form regarding rumours about his future and salary at the club, a meeting took place (in Rome) between his Agent (Federico Pastorello), Sporting Director Igli Tare, and President Claudio Lotito. The communication of the player’s problem with the club was clarified at this meeting; the common desire was to work on finding a solution that satisfied all parties involved, which seems to have now occurred. An official announcement is pending.
