Midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan will extend his stay with Roma, claims insider Nicolo Schira.
The Rome club and the 32-year-old Armenian midfielder have agreed on details of a new contract until 2023, per Schira.
Moreover, his tweet specifies that the Roma midfielder will receive €4.5m a year under the new deal.
Besides the Italian club’s increasing of his wages to €4.5m, Roma will also ensure Mkhitaryan will receive adequate bonuses.
In 34 Serie A games last season, Mkhitaryan has scored 13 goals and he has also provided 10 assists.
Mourinho Offered Mkhitaryan a New Deal
It was previously reported that Henrikh Mkhitaryan could switch clubs following the arrival of coach Jose Mourinho. After all, the 32-year-old’s contract expires at the end of June.
(Mourinho, with whom Mkhitaryan did not develop a good relationship at Manchester United, joined Roma right after leaving Tottenham Hotspurs.)
However, Mourinho extended an olive branch toward Mkhitaryan by offering him a contract extension with Roma.
However, according to The Mirror, Mourinho reportedly offered Mkhitaryan a new two-year-deal worth £3.8million a season, which later became €4.5m.
The new Roma coach gave Mkhitaryan 48 hours to either accept his offer or opt to become a free agent.
And clearly, the Roma star chose to stay so that now Mkhitaryan will extend his stay with Roma till 2023.
