January 19 News from Andrea Pugliese, a reporter from Gazzetta dello Sport in Rome
According to reports, Roma director Pinto will focus on the contract renewal work, and the first task is to complete the contract renewal with the core player Dybala.
This report mentioned that considering the urgency of time, Roma first needs to discuss the renewal issue with Smalling. The latter’s contract expires on June 30, 2023. The player has an automatic renewal clause, but he himself prefers
I hope to jump out of the contract and re-sign a two-year contract with an after-tax annual salary of 3.5 million bonus. Rome hopes to reduce the salary appropriately, and the two sides will continue to discuss it.
Another focus of work is Dybala. He has been reborn after joining Roma. The contract between the two parties expires in 2025. At the same time, he has the option to renew the contract for one year. The current salary of the player is 4.5 million euros after tax bonuses.
The maximum can reach 6 million euros, and the contract also includes the famous 20 million euro termination clause.

Roma hopes to improve this contract to avoid any risk of losing Dybala, such as raising the salary of the Argentine to a fixed annual salary of 6 million euros after tax floating bonus, so that the termination clause in the contract can be automatically removed.
As for the renewal of Zaniolo’s contract, Roma director Pinto and the player’s agent have already had a meeting, but no agreement has been reached so far. This situation is very dangerous for the club.
