Roma have reached an agreement regarding Gianluca Mancini’s contract extension.
The club communicated this signing via the following announcement on their official website.
The club is delighted to announce that defender Gianluca Mancini has signed a new long-term contract extension with the club.
Mancini, 26, has agreed a new five-year deal with Roma that runs until 30 June 2027.
The Italy international was an almost ever-present for coach Jose Mourinho last season, making 45 appearances for the club in all competitions.
“To think that, brick by brick, I have slowly built such a close bond with this club, this city and these fans is an incredible feeling for me,” Mancini said.
“Alongside the victory in the Europa Conference League, I see this new contract as a new starting point for us: continuing to grow and improve, together as a group, is the sole objective I have in mind now.”
Mancini joined the Giallorossi in the summer of 2019. Since then he has made 127 appearances in all competitions and scored seven goals for the club – with victory in the Europa Conference League last May becoming his first major piece of silverware in Giallorosso.
“Over time Gianluca has carved out an important role for himself both on and off the pitch,” said the club’s General Manager, Tiago Pinto.
“He’s achieved that thanks to his willingness to sacrifice for others, a desire to never hide behind excuses and his own qualities as a leader.
“We know that he is a warrior on the pitch and we want to build from that attitude as we aim to continue making progress.”
