Contract discussions between Roma and highly rated young left back Riccardo Calafiori have stalled.
Il Tempo reports that the Giallorossi and Calafiori’s agent, Mino Raiola, have not been able to agree on anything when it comes to a potential new deal for the young defender, whose current contract expires in June 2022.
Reportedly, Roma offered the youngster a new five-year contract worth €500,000 (net) per season — Raiola, however, is requesting a three-year deal worth €1.2 million (net) per season.
To date, the parties have disagreed on nearly every aspect of the contract renewal and neither side has been willing to budge — making it more than likely that Roma will be forced to make a definitive decision on Calafiori relatively soon.
Raiola has already started offering the fullback around Italy and Europe — however, there is a feeling that a deal could be reached if Roma were to raise their offer to €800,000. Furthermore, Calafiori’s family is pushing the Italian super-agent to lower his demands.
If an agreement is not reached, Roma would be ready to listen to offers from other clubs starting with the January transfer market given that the player would fetch the club a large capital gain.
