Roma to address contract renewals for five names


After waiving goodbye to their sporting director and their manager within the last week, a revolution has begun at Trigoria. But before welcoming any new players in the summer, Roma will work to address the contract situations of some of their important pieces already in the team, reports La Gazzetta dello Sport. The first is that of Daniele De Rossi, whose contract expires in June. The captain has always maintained he will only leave when he can no longer give 100%, however, talks regarding his future won’t be held until after the season. It’s a different circumstance when discussing Zaniolo and Cengiz Ünder, however. The former is one of Roma’s lowest earners and is likely to see his wages rise to €1.5 million. The Turk, meanwhile, earns only €1 million and certainly merits an important increase. Finally, there’s the situations of El Shaarawy and Dzeko. The Giallorossi must decide if they will go forward with both, however, they will certainly renew their contracts even if they decide to later sell. With Monchi’s departure, it will be up to Ricky Massara to resolve these issues, especially if he’s given the job permanently.
