AS Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi would be open to a summer move to Real Madrid should the Spanish giants come calling. The tough-tackling skipper has been mentioned as a possible first signing at Real for prospective new coach Jose Mourinho. The 26-year-old insists he is happy at the Stadio Olimpico and not looking to leave his hometown club, but he would consider moving to Spain should Roma accept an offer for him, "If Roma accepted an offer for me for whatever reason then I would go," he said. "I cannot just stop playing. If it happened it would be a huge sacrifice for me and Roma. "As for Italy, I could never join another Italian club apart from Roma."
