The Biancocelesti have offered Radu a one-year contract extension, tying him to the club until the summer of 2022. The Romanian would prefer a two-year deal, but may agree to the extension and then evaluate his situation at the end of next season.

The intention of both parties is to continue their long relationship, with the only things remaining being a meeting between the two parties and the signature.
