Report: Zaniolo-Roma distance

Distance has reportedly emerged in contract talks between Roma and midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo.

Zaniolo’s family have always maintained that the 19-year-old will sign a new contract with Roma, but Il Messaggero believes a potential stumbling block has cropped up.

That would be as the Giallorossi want to pay him a salary of €1.7m plus bonuses until 2024, while the Italy starlet is requesting only an improvement on his current deal, worth more than €2m a season.

The former Inter teen has scored three goals in 33 appearances for the Lupi this season but has also been linked with the likes of Juventus, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.
