Di Benedetto funds Roma bid to secure De Rossi to new deal

AS Roma owner Thomas Di Benedetto has agreed with fellow investors Unicredit on a budget for their next three years.

American businessman Di Benedetto is currently in Rome thrashing out financial details for the Giallorossi and Sky Sport 24 says an agreement over a three year budget was struck late, last night.

The new finance is expected to see Roma deliver offers for Espanyol striker Pablo Daniel Osvaldo and Wolfsburg defender Simon Kjaer.

It also enables Roma to table an improved contract offer to midfielder Daniele de Rossi.

The capital club hope to convince De Rossi to stay with a new deal now tabled worth €5.5 million-a-year.
