Report: Roma set to announce Florenzi contract extension

The announcement should arrive by the end of this month, Italian sources are reporting

After months of speculation, Alessandro Florenzi (23) looks ready to sign a new contract with his club. The Roman, who currently earns €600,000 per year and has a contract expiring in 2016, will remain a Roma player until 2020. The midfielder’s wage will be doubled to €1.2 million, with bonuses as for goals and caps that could easily bring his earnings in the €1.5 million region. Florenzi’s agent Alessandro Lucci will meet Roma management by the end of November, but it looks like all the details are on paper and only formalities are missing.
