Reports in Argentina claim former Roma captain Daniele De Rossi will stay at Boca Juniors until December 2020, even if Nicolas Burdisso leaves.
His future at La Bombonera was believed to depend on what will happen regarding his former teammate in Italy and now sporting director at Boca, Nicolas Burdisso.
Now, TyCSports are claiming the midfielder will stay put until December next year, no matter what happens.
Last month De Rossi was linked with a move back to the Giallorossi, thought to be leading the race to replace his own father as Primavera youth team coach at the Olimpico.
The 36-year-old has been struggling with injuries since he moved to the Argentinian capital and has only played five matches for Los Xeneizes, leading to questions over his contribution at the club.
