No offer yet for Mexes

Philippe Mexes wants to stay at Roma, but he has worryingly revealed that he's yet to be offered a new deal.

The Frenchman's contract expires in the summer, but talks over an extension have seemingly been put on hold until the club is finally sold to new owners.

Despite attracting the interest of some of Europe's top clubs, Mexes is adamant that he wants a capital future.

"I still haven't received a proposal for a contract renewal," the former Auxerre defender noted on Friday.

"However, my desire is to stay with this club and there is still plenty of time for discussions to take place between myself and Roma."

Milan are thought to be monitoring the Mexes situation very carefully as there is some doubt over the future of Alessandro Nesta at San Siro.

The latter, a former Italian international, also has less than six months left on his contract and it's unclear whether Milan will offer him a fresh deal.

Roma yesterday insisted that Mexes had been offered a new contract.
