Calafiori renews Roma contract

John Solano

Despite a long and tense negotiation, Roma left back Riccardo Calafiori has renewed his contract with the club.

Filippo Biafora of Il Tempo reports that the 18 year-old put pen to paper on his new contract earlier this afternoon after his agent, Mino Raiola, found an agreement with Roma within the last two weeks.

The only thing missing is the official announcement from the club, who were keen to keep the youngster in the Italian capital despite the massive amounts of interest that he attracted both in Italy and abroad — including Juve, PSG, and Fiorentina.

Roma are expected to formally announce the defender’s renewal in the coming days.
