Roma defender Gianluca Mancini is ready to move forward after the disappointment of missing out on Italy’s Euro 2020 squad.
The 25 year-old was a surprise exclusion by manager Roberto Mancini, who instead selected Atalanta defender Rafael Toloi.
Despite the bitterness, Mancini wants to look ahead and consolidate his place under incoming manager José Mourinho.
According to today’s edition of Corriere dello Sport, the capital club consider the Italian fundamental to the team and want to ensure his future remains at the club.
The Giallorossi are ready to hand Mancini a new contract, which would expire in June 2025, as well as important wage increase. Though, the deal could also include a buyout clause worth between €40-€50 million.
The former Fiorentina youth prospect featured in 33 league appearances this past season for Roma, amassing four goals and two assists.
He emerged as an important figure both on the pitch and in the dressing room Roma, especially given the absence of fellow defender Chris Smalling.
The club has already opened discussions with Mancini’s agent and there’s unlikely to be any problems in reaching an agreement.
