The 32-year-old has struggled to play regularly for the Italian club so far this season, making just three appearances in Serie A.
As he does not feature prominently in coach Rudi Garcia's plans, the former Inter Milan player has said that he is contemplating leaving Rome in the New Year.
"I will do all I can to be part of the World Cup squad," he told reporters. "If necessary, I will even think about leaving Roma. I will decide after Christmas.
"But I am very attached to this club and the city. I have a role at Roma and the number of games I play is not the only thing that matters, even if I want to return to the Argentina side.
"Roma are doing very well this term, things are working and it's all very positive. I've been feeling in good shape since the summer and I just need to be patient."
