Roma and Italy wide man Marco Motta's future will be decided by a blind auction after failing to reach a deal with Udinese.
The versatile player is still co-owned by the two clubs and negotiations ground to a halt before last night's deadline.
"We tried in every possible way to find a solution, but all the offers made to the player were rejected," claimed Giallorossi director Daniele Prade.
"We had several meetings with Udinese. President Rosella Sensi and patron Giampaolo Pozzo talked things over in a bid to resolve the situation.
"I don't want to say that we feel betrayed by Motta. Having said that, at delicate times like this the players could give their clubs a little bit of a hand."
When sides cannot agree on how to resolve a co-ownership situation, it goes to a blind auction.
Both clubs place a bid in a sealed envelope and the highest offer wins the remaining 50 per cent of his contract.
Meanwhile, Roma have also been in talks with Siena. Although the co-ownership deals for Aleandro Rosi and Gianluca Curci are renewed, Rosi will return to the Giallorossi to play next season.
