Roma management are ready to secure a raft of their players to improved contracts.

Despite warnings of an economic downturn in Italian football, Roma have agreements almost in place with Juan, Alberto Aquilani and Francesco Totti. The only outstanding deal is Mirko Vucinic, who is demanding £1.8 million-a-year.

Talks are also being scheduled with Simone Perrotta, David Pizarro, Max Tonetto, Mauro Cassetti and Rodrigo Taddei.
