Roma want to keep hold of Pellegrini
There are various reasons why the young Italian is one of the most sort after in his country. He has great quality with the ball at his feet and he is just 23 years old. He has a very bright future and his value could shoot up in very little time.
Arsenal showed interest in signing him not long ago at all because Emery likes him. His low buyout clause for someone who stands out in Europe opens the doors to many clubs who want to sign him. It is something the Italians want to put right.
Therefore, according to 'La Gazzetta dello Sport', Roma will soon offer the player a new contract with an important pay rise and the complete removal of a buout clause. That way, the club will be able to negotiate the cost of the player with any interested parties if interest comes about.
At the moment, the footballer is out with a fractured right foot which will see him out for two months. That could be the perfect amount of time for the club owner to sit down and negotiate the foundations for a new deal.
