The future of several players at Roma is in jeopardy, according to Corriere dello Sport, given the team’s inconsistent output so far this season.
Roma’s management are planning a major revolution in the summer and the likes of Veretout, Cristante, Smalling and Mkhitaryan are likely to leave once the current campaign comes to an end.
Jordan Veretout’s significant drop in form has motivated Roma to halt negotiations over a contract extension. The Giallorossi have fixed a price-tag of €25 million on the French international who has drawn interest from Milan, Napoli and some Premier League sides.
Roma will also evaluate offers for Bryan Cristante – whose agent was reportedly in contact with Sevilla a week ago – and Chris Smalling.
The Englishman’s agent met with Tiago Pinto yesterday to possibly inquire about extending the centre-back’s contract which is set to expire next year. Roma have no intention of signing anything at the moment.
Furthermore, Gianluca Mancini’s long-awaited renewal is yet to be made official, and once again the Giallorossi are in no rush to do so. The official proceedings regarding the 25-year-old’s extension until 2026 have been put on hold for the time being.
Finally, Mkhitaryan could leave as a free agent this coming summer with Dinamo Moscow being the primary suitors for the Armenian attacker.
