Roma keen to renew Garcia

Roma are seen as eager to hand Rudi Garcia, as well as Miralem Pjanic, an improved contract to deter potential interest from elsewhere.

The Frenchman has impressed during his first six months in the Italian capital, helping the club to win their first 10 games of the Serie A season, whilst keeping them second in the table up until this point.

It is a return that has the Giallorossi as eager to improve and extend his current contract, reports Il Messagero today.

Whilst the 49-year-old’s current deal runs through to June 2015, Roma are believed keen to secure him to a longer term deal so as to ward off potential interest this summer from other European clubs looking to hire.

Meanwhile, it is also seen by Il Messagero today that the Lupi are continuing to push for Pjanic to renew his current contract, with a new deal to include a buyout clause of €30m.
