Real Madrid CF have sold Brazilian right-back Cicinho to UEFA Champions League rivals AS Roma for a fee which could rise to €11m.

Busy day
The 27-year-old Cicinho, who qualifies for EU citizenship through a distant relative, has signed a five-year contract with the Giallorossi who finished second in Serie A last season. Madrid's agreement on the deal came as the Spanish champions announced moves for Argentina defender Gabriel Heinze and Netherlands winger Arjen Robben from Manchester United FC and Chelsea FC respectively. Cicinho began his career at CR Botafogo in Brazil before moving to CA Mineiro and then São Paulo FC. He switched to Madrid in January 2006 for a fee of €4m. Roma begin the new Serie A season away to US Città di Palermo on Sunday.
