It ongoing tussle between the two clubs means the future of the Mexican winger is still up in the air.
According to Record, the Italian club offered $8 million USD for 100 percent of the player rights, but Pachuca asked for at least $10 million and want to keep a percentage of Damm’s rights.
This is not the first time Pachuca have tried to keep a percentage of players that are looking to move to Europe – the club negotiated the same arrangement when Hector Herrera left to Porto and when Enner Valencia moved to West Ham.
Damm would not need to take the place of a foreigner at Roma as, because of his German father, he also holds an EU passport. According to FIFA Damm is one of the fastest dribblers in the world.
