Real Madrid midfielder Fernando Gago is set to join Roma on loan with a view to a permanent deal after snubbing interest from England, according to one of the Spanish club's agents.

The Argentine was linked with big-spending Premier League pair Manchester City and Liverpool earlier this summer, but he is said to prefer a move to Italy.

Agent Ernesto Bronzetti, who works as an intermediary for Real, says the Spanish club have agreed to the loan, which could lead to a €6million (£5.3m) permanent deal, and now Roma just have to complete negotiations.

"There was the opportunity for him to go to England," Bronzetti told Tele Radio Stereo.

"But when the player heard of Roma, he blocked any other case to give his all to Roma."

Bronzetti at the same time claims Roma have made an enquiry about former Chelsea, Arsenal and Portsmouth man Lassana Diarra, who was reportedly a target of Tottenham.

"Roma have also made an attempt for Diarra, but Real Madrid do not want him to leave him unless there is a definite offer to buy him," said Bronzetti.
