Roma to renew Luigi Cherubini’s contract after failed move to Juve

Andy Mattioli

Roma are said to be willing to extend Primavera captain Luigi Cherubini’s stay.

The youngster had been the subject of negotiations between Roma and Juventus in January – with the Bianconeri interested in signing him on loan.

However, the deal collapsed once it was revealed that Cherubini had to undergo surgery to remove a cyst on his knee.

As a result, Il Romanista reports that Roma have now changed their plans and are ready to submit a proposal for a new contract for Cherubini.

The 20-year-old from Tivoli is expected to be shortly back on the pitch as his recovery begins to enter its final stages.
