For a second straight summer, Michael Bradley is changing clubs. But this time he is staying in Italy and playing for one of the more prolific clubs in the world.
Bradley joined AS Roma from Chievo Verona on Sunday, the Italian heavyweight announced on its website. Roma paid Chievo a transfer fee of $4.6 million plus a 50 percent share in Romanian youngster Adrian Stoian for Bradley, who agreed to a four-year deal.
Bradley has already joined his new Roma teammates for their preseason training camp.
Signing with Roma is the latest step up the European club ladder for the 24-year-old U.S. men's national team midfielder. He previously played for Borussia Moenchengladbach and SC Heerenveen while also spending a brief loan stint with Aston Villa.
