Matteo Brighi Still Waiting For Roma’s Renewal, Not Joining Inter – Agent

The midfielder is still waiting for a new contract from the Giallorossi, but is not interested in leaving the club.
Vanni Puzzolo, agent of Roma midfielder Matteo Brighi, confirmed that there have been no developments with regards to his client’s contract extension with his current club.

His contract expires in 2012, but Puzzolo believes that Brighi deserves a better salary than the one he is currently on.

“We’re still waiting to speak about the contract,” revealed the player’s agent to Sportmediaset.it.

“Matteo wants to remain in Rome - he has a contract until 2012 and cares about his rapport with the squad and the fans.”

This means that the transfer rumours linking him to Inter are just pure speculation, and Puzzolo went on to categorically reject the whispers.

“I absolutely deny them,” he continued. “Months ago I had heard something on this story, but we have never been contacted by Inter and we have never contacted the Nerazzurri’s directors.

“What I can say is that in January, Milan contacted us also due to [Gennaro] Gattuso’s injury. However, I repeat, we’re happy with Roma.”

Despite the Giallorossi not having the best season, the 28-year-old was in good form throughout the campaign, playing in 35 league games and contributing three goals for his club.
