Aquilani agent insists on Roma stay

The agent of Alberto Aquilani says the midfielder wants to stay with Roma.

"Aquilani has made it clear on a number of occasions already - he wants to stay at Roma," Franco Zavaglia noted. "Alberto, along with Daniele De Rossi, represents the future of the club for the next decade."

Inter were heavily linked with a bid for the former Under-21 international before Christmas, but the agent insists that leaving Rome is not on the player's agenda.

"The player's own desire and how much the club want to invest in him is what will determine his future," Zavaglia continued. "The fact that the Roman public love him will not matter when we go and discuss his contract, it just depends on what both parties want.

"It's clear that Alberto is liked by European and Italian clubs, but the Inter rumours seem journalistic. I'm not aware of any Inter offer.

"Aquilani's contract expires in 2010 and there is no rush or an appointment for talks. We'll just wait for Roma to make their move as we have great faith in them."
