Official: Lorenzo Pellegrini renews with Roma until 2026

Lorenzo Pellegrini has officially signed a contract renewal until 2026 with Roma.

The capital club made the announcement on their website after meeting this afternoon with Pellegrini and his agent, Giampiero Pocetta, who confirmed to RomaPress that a deal was done.

“It’s impossible for me to explain this feeling, it’s what I’ve always wanted – to cement this bond between myself and my team and my city,” Pellegrini said to ASRoma.com.

“You couldn’t imagine a greater feeling than this. I feel truly honoured that the ownership, Tiago [Pinto] and the coach have always considered me so important; I will try to repay that faith every day on the pitch by giving 110 per cent and doing everything I can to keep improving.”

Roma executive Tiago Pinto also gave his take on the midfielder’s new contract, which will make him the highest earner at the club alongside Tammy Abraham.

“From the moment I started work here a key target was to agree a contract extension with Lorenzo: for that reason this is a very significant day for me,” said Pinto, the club’s General Manager.

“Lorenzo is the perfect example of the core characteristics our sporting project; not just because of his evident ability as a player but also because, being a Rome-born, Roma fan who was developed within our academy system, he shares a bond with the club that makes him a pillar of what we are building.

“No sporting project can be put in place without a clear and strong identity underpinning it.”

Pellegrini has started the 2020-21 season in scintillating form, scoring six goals and providing a further two assists in nine appearances so far.
