Nice has Already Agreed Personal Terms with Pablo Rosario
Dutch midfielder Pablo Rosario is very close to joining Nice from PSV Eindhoven. The 24-year-old has reportedly agreed personal terms with the French side days ago. The midfielder will be the third Dutch international to join Les Aiglons in this transfer window. The absence of Rosario from the travelling squad to Istanbul had raised rumours about his potential move away from the club.
Hailed as the next Ronaldo, the Rosario had a huge media following early in his career. The Dutch international joined PSV in 2016 after a season with Alemere City. Rosario spent his first season at Eindhoven with the reserves before making his debut in 2017. The midfielder has shown glimpses of his talents but has failed to produce them consistently. In four seasons with PSV, Pablo Rosario has made 120 appearances and scored five goals.
Several Incomings for Nice
The French side have been very busy during this transfer window. Nice had a change in management early in the transfer window with reigning Ligue 1 league winning manager Christophe Galtier replacing caretaker Adrian Ursea. Les Aiglons signed Jean-Clair Todibo early in the transfer window. Highly-rated Dutch winger Calving Stengs signed for the club in early July.
Melvin Bard also moved to the club a week ago. While Mario Lemina completed a move to the French side a couple of days ago. Roma winger Justin Kluivert has also joined Nice on loan. Pablo Rosario will be the sixth player to arrive in Nice during this transfer window.
