The experienced Brazilian will take a pay cut on a current deal that would have run until 2003 to secure a longer term contract that will run for another five years.
Cafu is one the most highly respected full backs in the world and the new deal will take him well into the twilight of his career.
The Brazilian international will be approaching 35 when the new contract terminates, and is essentially committing the remainder of his career to the Roman club.
Cafu's impending signature will be a welcome boon to Roma, especially following the news that fellow countryman Zago is struggling to find an agreement with the Serie A champions.
