The player and his agent met with Roma officials on Thursday but, although the meeting went well, there is still talk of Cassano joining Juventus in January or next summer.
However, Giallorossi sporting director Daniele Prade has again insisted that Cassano is staying, saying that talks are going well.
"Cassano's renewal with Roma? Everything is going well," Prade told the Italian press before an Italian League meeting.
"Do you want to know if in the future we will see him in a Juve jersey? I don't think so."
Cassano's current deal expires next summer and some at Roma are getting nervous that he may leave for nothing, but the club are confident he will at least sign a one-year extension.
