Edoardo Bove has been a regular since José Mourinho started guiding Roma. As the Special One often recalls, he was bound to be loaned out to Serie C when he joined. Instead, he has more than held his own in the top flight and Europe.
According to Il Messaggero (via Mediaset), the midfielder is one of the least-paid players on the squad. He’s due for an extension, as he has 18 months left on his deal. His next contract will likely run until 2028.
Once they shake hands, Bove and Roma will decide the future together. There’s a chance he’s loaned out to a smaller club to be a full-time starter. He wouldn’t lack suitors if that were the case. In addition, a few Serie A sides asked for him when the Giallorossi set sights on one of their players.
The 21-year-old has spent his entire career in the Italian Capital. He has scored 4 goals and provided 2 assists in 62 appearances with the first team.
Our Take on Roma and Bove
He should surely be rewarded sooner rather than later. Considering all their trouble at their position, it doesn’t make sense to let go of a steady contributor who doesn’t complain if he has to ride the pine. But there’s always a chance their youth products get sacrificed at the altar of their struggling finances, as they have done with Cristian Volpato, Benjamin Tahirovic, and Filippo Missori in the recent past, since they don’t have many profitable pieces.
