The Roma sporting director Monchi has already spoken with the Italy international. The future of the captain will be decided at the end of the 2018-19 campaign.

In today’s press conference ahead of the International Champions Cup match Roma-Real Madrid, De Rossi explained his current mood.

“I feel like a strong player and I want to show it all year round. Monchi made me feel his closeness from a football and human standpoint. They care for me on a human level,” Daniele De Rossi said at the press conference that took place in New Jersey.

“I’m not looking for a year of contract, I’ve earned so much in my career. I would like to win something important with this jersey and I am absolutely terrified to think of dragging myself into the field when I will turn 37, 38 or 39.”

“If I had to leave, it’s because I want to have another experience that, as I’ve always said, would excite me, first of all in this country. But as long as I can stay in Rome there is no such rush. There is a year ahead and we’ll talk later “.
