Federico Fazio has signed a new two-year contract with Roma, keeping him at the club until 2021.
The Argentine defender’s deal had been due to expire next summer, but he has now penned a one-year extension, which will take him into his fourth and fifth seasons with the club.
“It’s my second renewal with the club and I am incredibly pleased,” Fazio told Roma’s official website.
“From the very first day here I have felt that the club has confidence in me, something that is important to every player.
“I’ve sensed that belief from everyone who works at Trigoria – a place I want to stay at for the long-term.”
It is believed that Fazio’s €2.5m salary will be spread over the two years, making this an economically smart move from Roma.
