Serie-A News: Roma captain Pellegrini signs a new long-term contract


Roma captain Lorenzo Pellegrini has signed a new long-term contract with the Serie A club.

The Italian midfielder’s future had been the subject of speculation, with his previous contract expiring at the end of this season and reportedly included a € 30m release clause.

Liverpool and Tottenham were among the clubs to tie the 25-year-old, who has scored six goals and provided two assists in nine appearances this season.

The Giallorossi announced on Saturday that Pellegrini has signed a new contract to keep him in the Eternal City until 30 June 2026.

“For me it is impossible to explain this feeling, it is what I have always wanted: to cement this bond between me, my team and my city,” said Pellegrini. “You couldn’t imagine a greater feeling than this.

“I feel truly honored that ownership, Tiago [Pinto, the general manager] and the coach [Jose Mourinho] they have always considered me so important; I will try to repay that confidence every day on the pitch by giving 110% and doing everything to keep improving. “
