Roma to increase Svilar’s wages as goalkeeper becomes central part of Giallorossi’s project

Roma are working on a new contract for their first-choice goalkeeper Mile Svilar.

The Serbian shot-stopper – rumored to have been on his way out of the Italian capital in January prior to Daniele De Rossi’s arrival – is now heavily favored to remain at Roma for years to come.

His unexpected emergence and ascent from back-up choice to regular starter under De Rossi has prompted the club to reconsider their plans for the summer which initially included a big investment for a player in his position.

Now, however, things have changed and La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that newly appointed technical director Florent Ghisolfi has been tasked with increasing Mile Svilar’s salary and extend his contract, making him central part of Roma’s long-term project.

Svilar currently earns less than €1 million per season.
