Roma are seemingly reluctant to cancel the likelihood of Nicolò Zaniolo leaving Rome this summer. There are numerous suitors hovering in the market for the Italy international.
Jose Mourinho and Tiago Pinto have not put Zaniolo’s name on the shortlist of transferrable assets but are open to listening to offers for the creative playmaker this summer.
The price has been relatively set too high. And Roma have not received an offer for the 22-year-old yet. Should Roma manage to get their desired valuation for the player this summer, a 15% share of the entire transfer fee will enter Inter’s bank, meaning the Giallorossi will then have to settle with a little over €60million. Therefore, the valuation appears to be justifiable from Roma’s point of view.
Zaniolo would like to continue his career in Rome. However, he only wants the club to extend his salary so that his number could match those of Tammy Abraham and Lorenzo Pellegrini, who earn a net salary of around €6million per season.
The report understands that Juventus have lost interest in making a deal for Zaniolo this summer, but Milan remain in the race. They are willing to offer the Giallorossi a package of €35million and additional bonuses. As of now, Zaniolo’s future in Roma has hit an “apparent stalemate”.
