Daniele de Rossi cannot rule out leaving AS Roma on a Bosman in June.
The midfielder is only tied to the Giallorossi until June 2012 and negotiations over a renewal are proving to be problematic.
"This is certainly a matter that should have been resolved earlier," the Roman said from Italy's Coverciano training base on Wednesday.
"Things have stalled right now and we are studying the matter, but we'll certainly find a solution, in one way or another, that suits everyone.
"Could I leave on a Bosman? It depends on the contract and if we reach an agreement.
"I have never put pressure on Roma and I never will as that would affect my relationship with the club."
