Lorenzo Pellegrini extended his stay at the Stadio Olimpico until 2026. Before the extension, his contract was due to expire at the end of the season. The €30 million release clause has also been completely removed, so anyone who wants the Italy international should negotiate directly with Roma.

It’s impossible for me to explain this feeling, it’s what I’ve always wanted – to cement this bond between myself and my team and my city,

” Pellegrini told the Roma website.

“You couldn’t imagine a greater feeling than this. I feel truly honoured that the ownership, Tiago [Pinto] and the coach have always considered me so important; I will try to repay that faith every day on the pitch by giving 110 per cent and doing everything I can to keep improving.”

this season was crucial as he was given the captain's armband and is one of the only remaining homegrown Romans in the team.

From the moment I started work here a key target was to agree a contract extension with Lorenzo: for that reason this is a very significant day for me,”

said general manager Tiago Pinto.

“Lorenzo is the perfect example of the core characteristics of our sporting project; not just because of his evident ability as a player but also because, being a Rome-born, Roma fan who was developed within our academy system, he shares a bond with the club that makes him a pillar of what we are building.

“No sporting project can be put in place without a clear and strong identity underpinning it.”
