Nicolo Zaniolo has confirmed he wants to remain with Roma suggesting he has a future at the club.
The 19-year-old star has emerged as one of Italy’s brightest stars with excellent displays in some games this season.
And those displays haven’t gone unnoticed with Tottenham Hotspur, Juventus, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid all mentioned as possible suitors.
#Zaniolo: "#DeRossi mi ha trattato come un figlio, è un giocatore assurdo, stamattina mi stava scendendo una lacrima. Il mio contratto? Ho fiducia su una mia permanenza alla #ASRoma, la società si vedrà con il mio procuratore a fine campionato"@tempoweb pic.twitter.com/frNU8OuvzQ

However, the attacking midfielder told Corriere dello Sport: “I still have four years left on the contract, I see my future here.
“Flattery from other clubs is naturally pleasing, but I’m ready to sign a renewal because I’m happy here. I’d be happy to stay.
“I’m completely focused on these last two games, I’m not thinking about anything else. We must try to win them both, then we’ll take stock.”
Despite the breakout nature of the 19-year-old’s season, he admitted he had one big regret.
“The goal we conceded at Genoa, which prevented us from gaining three important points.”
AS Roma are in a four-horse race to secure a Champions League ticket, even though manager Ranieri has promised to fight till the end, their chances remain increasingly unlikely with a resurgent Atalanta set to clinch the fourth spot.
