"AC Milan on Mexes? Absolutely never, I have a clear and strong friendship with Rosella Sensi and her father Franco," said Galliani.

"If Roma were to sell the player, then we'd be interested, but we will never use clauses or other things, this is a solemn commitment."

Galliani continued: "Maybe there is also respect between our sets of fans, which for the first time I have recognised when I went to the Olimpico. Nothing against Inter, but for me, Roma has played the best football of the season."
