Roma and Zaniolo agent meet amid Milan and Juventus interest

Roma director Tiago Pinto met with Nicolò Zaniolo’s agent this evening, just hours after an encounter with Milan, amid on-going interest from Juventus and contract extension issues.

The Italy international is under contract until June 2024, so the matter is not considered to be urgent, but his future remains very much in doubt at the Stadio Olimpico.

Multiple sources including Sportitalia and the Corriere dello Sport maintain Tiago Pinto had dinner with Zaniolo’s agent this evening and they will also go on to have dinner later.

The initial reports coming in suggest that although Milan and Juventus may well be interested, they have not made any offers to Roma or Zaniolo.

In turn, the Giallorossi are in no rush to discuss a contract extension for Zaniolo, which would inevitably require a pay rise and possibly a release clause.

The versatile forward turns 23 next month and contributed eight goals with nine assists in 42 competitive matches for Jose Mourinho’s side this season.
