Daniele de Rossi will enter crunch talks with AS Roma coach Zdenek Zeman on Wednesday. De Rossi wants clear the air talks with Zeman after fulfilling his commitments with Italy, demanding to know where he stands in the coach's plans.

Il Romanista says De Rossi is still bristling after being axed for the win over Atalanta and also is concerned Zeman won't play him in his preferred playmaker role.

De Rossi's priority is to work out his differences with Zeman, but he won't tolerate a bench role with the likes of Manchester City and PSG eager to lure him away.
