Roma are reportedly in no rush to renew Nicolo Zaniolo’s contract which is currently set to expire in 2024.
The club and player are focused on preparing the upcoming second half of the season and talks revolving around the youngster’s highly anticipated contract renewal had been put on hold for the past few weeks, with the Friedkins wanting to postpone all negotiations until the New Year.
According to La Repubblica, the Roma attacker’s agent – Claudio Vigorelli – is expected to meet with Giallorossi GM Tiago Pinto in the coming days. The meeting will serve to find common ground regarding the 23-year-old’s earnings outlined in the new contract.
Zaniolo wants to rank among the team’s top players in terms of salary, but Roma seem reluctant to fulfil his wishes, informs the Italian newspaper. The gap between demand and offer is still getting in the way of successful conclusion.
