Nicolo Zaniolo’s future is yet to be determined as the player’s entourage and Roma haven’t managed to reach an agreement despite talks have been ongoing since the first week of September.
The initial hope was to pen an agreement during the upcoming World Cup break. However, for now, little progress has been made, reports Il Tempo. Zaniolo’s demands are still deemed too high by Roma’s management.
The player is reportedly intent on earning upwards of €4 million, a sum that would place him among the highest club earners like Tammy Abraham and Lorenzo Pellegrini. Roma, however, are not convinced of Zaniolo’s output and performances and as a result, have proposed lower figures.
The Italian newspaper further reports that a decision will be made in December: either the two sides complete a deal before the end of the year, or Zaniolo will assess his options in the summer of next year when he will only have one year left on his current contract with the Giallorossi.
