De Rossi staying at Roma, club insist

Italy international Daniele De Rossi will not leave Roma this summer, according to club technical director Bruno Conti.

The Roma midfielder has been linked with a move away from the Stadio Olimpico in recent seasons and reports in Italy claimed Roma had turned down a 45million euro bid from Manchester City earlier this month.

"De Rossi is not for sale," said Conti.

"In no eventual strategy in our market do we predict his possible sale."

City boss Roberto Mancini is a keen admirer of the 26-year-old, who turned down a move to Real Madrid last summer and is expected to be a starter in Marcello Lippi's World Cup squad.
