De Rossi agrees to 'early' clause?

There are reports Daniele De Rossi could sign a five-year contract with Roma worth €6m per season, but it has an unusual buy-out clause.

The ‘Future Captain’ has been at the centre of renegotiations for many months now and his current deal expires in June.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the club is edging closer to an agreement with De Rossi and his entourage.

The 28-year-old is ready to sign a five-year contract worth €6m per season, but it has an unusual buy-out clause.

The figure of the buy-out clause is not that steep, placed at around €15m, but it would have to be exercised a month before the end of the season.

This would allow Roma plenty of time to find a suitable replacement should De Rossi decide to move on.
