In an interview reported by Football Italia, Paratici confirmed that a deal was not done and dusted, but close.

He said:

“We’re down to the details, but not completed.”

“Mario is in Qatar, he’s a great person and player, we are glad to have had him with us for four years.”

“Now we hope he’ll enjoy this new experience.”
