The problem is the following: both have a contract until 2021, but they earn a lot in comparison to how much they contribute to the squad. The Argentine earns 4.7 million euros a year while his teammate gets 3.6. Very large amounts of money which the club could do without paying.
Therefore, 'Il Corriere dello Sport' says that both are heading for the exit. As soon as an attractive offer comes along, they will leave and that could come as early as January.
The attacker is getting back into form and coming up the bench in several games, but he is not indispensable. The defender is not even making Paulo Fonseca's squads.
If the duo depart, it would free up more than eight million euros for Roma. That would allow Roma to get some replacements on the cheap who would be happy to take a secondary role.
