‘Let’s first see what I can do in Roma and at the end of the season I think we can talk if I will have the possibility to stay or to go to something else, I don’t know,’ the midfielder told VBET News.

‘Now, I cannot say about future, it’s better to be focused on the next games.’

Roma are currently 15th in the embryonic Serie A table, having thrown away a 3-1 lead to draw 3-3 with Genoa on the opening day of the season. 

Paulo Fonseca’s side followed up with a 1-1 draw against Lazio on Sunday in the Derby della Capitale.
