AS Roma president Francco Sensi says Italian international striker Vincenzo Montella has signed a new contract to stay with the champions to June 2006.

Inter and Manchester United had both looked at signing Montella whose fractious relationship with Roma coach Fabio Capello led to rumours of his departure.

But Capello signed a new contract earlier this week to stay to 2005 and the loss of form for Argentine veteran Gabriel Batistuta leaves Montella as the current first choice.

Capello wants to sign Deportivo La Coruna striker Diego Tristan in the summer principally to work in tandem with 28 year old Montella. Batistuta is likely to move from Roma easing Montella's situation in the Roma squad and Sensi says he is staying put. Montella's current deal is until 2004, but Roma were keen to put an end to rumours that the 28-year-old could leave because he believed that coach Fabio Capello favoured Argentinian striker Gabriel Batistuta.

Sensi says the new contract extension was signed by the striker five days ago and now needs to be registered with the Italian league.

It hands Montella a pay packet of 32.9 million Euros over the next four years.

That's a lot a money. These soccer players can't complain, their life is just too good, grown men playing a children's game for a living and getting paid millions for it, plus tons of women that want to date them and do them:D
