Roma are prepared to delay the contract extension involving Nicolo Zaniolo despite having laid the foundation for the same.
La Gazzetta dello Sport have reported that Jose Mourinho has privately been full of praise of Zaniolo and he believes that the Italian is just a level below Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe. But he doesn’t want to play him in wide positions as it will require him to cover a lot of ground.
Then there is the issue of the contract which brings about uncertainty, even though Roma consider him to be one of their best players. They want him to get rid of the rust from injuries.
If he judged to be one of the most important players in the side, he doesn’t earn as much as the others. His agent has laid down the foundations for a renewal but for the aforementioned uncertainties, the club is willing to wait.
