Roma to Arrange Zaniolo Contract Talks Come September

Nicolo Zaniolo put in an impressive show against Salernitana in Roma’s season opener, helping the Giallorossi to a 1-0 win to secure all three points. The 23-year-old was linked regularly to the exit door at Stadio Olimpico, but eventually buzz about suitors such as Manchester United, Juventus and Tottenham Hotspur faded as the months clocked down.

As per Tuttomercatoweb, Zaniolo is once again at the center of the Rome project under José Mourinho, who handed him a start in the first game of the season. With only two weeks left in the summer transfer window, both the player’s entourage and the club officials are touted to sit down to talk about the renewal of his contract.

The attacking starlet is said to have already entertained the idea of staying put in the Italian capital, with the club also interested in securing his services for the coming years. A five-year contract is reportedly in the works. Negotiations will take place between Roma and Zaniolo post-September.

Our Take on Zaniolo Staying Put

Zaniolo’s quality is undoubtedly great, and Mourinho will be more than happy to accommodate him in his starting eleven. With a frontline of Dybala, Zaniolo, Tammy Abraham and Lorenzo Pellegrini, one can imagine the Giallorossi’s attacking prowess in the final third.
