Lille midfielder Rio Mavuba has revealed he had an offer from AS Roma in the summer.
âThere was contact with Roma,â he told RMC Sport. âEven before the arrival of Rudi Garcia they were after me.
âThe club was interested because De Rossi was poised to leave at the time â it looked like he was about to go.
âEventually though, he stayed in Rome and the move was off.
âIâm focused fully on Lille, but at the end of the season weâll see what happens.â
