Even though he’ll turn 34 years-old next January, Henrikh Mkhitaryan wants to extend his stay in the Italian capital with Roma.
The Armenian’s contract expires in June but the Giallorossi want to keep him at the club given the important role he’s played this season under José Mourinho.
This season Mkhitaryan has tallied 3 goals and 7 assists in 34 appearances in all competitions—arguably one of their most consistent performers. He’s thriving in his new hybrid midfielder role after Mourinho moved him to a deeper position earlier this year.
According to Corriere della Sera, the veteran is keen to sign a new two-year contract as opposed to one-year deal he signed last summer.
The report also claims Mkhitaryan is seeking wages in the area of €4 million (net) per season.
