Daniele de Rossi is pricing himself out of a move to Manchester City.

The Guardian says Mancini wants to sign De Rossi from AS Roma, knowing that the Italy international may be available for as little as £5m because he will be out of contract in the summer.

However, De Rossi's salary requirements have been described as "Tevez-level" and Uefa's incoming financial fair play regulations have put immense pressure on City to reduce their costs.
