The Argentine is one of the most coveted central defenders in Europe, and has been outstanding for the Giallorossi since arriving in Rome from Boca Juniors in the summer of 2000.
The 25-year-old expressed his delight at having extended his stay in the Eternal City.
"I have renewed my contract and I am very happy. I will continue at Rome at least until the end of 2008," stated the stopper.
Samuel was strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid in the summer, but now seems unlikely to leave the Stadio Olimpico for the foreseeable future.
