Man City boss Mancini calls on Txiki to bid for Roma's De Rossi

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini wants a deal for AS Roma star Daniele de Rossi.

The Daily Mail says Mancini will ask Manchester City director of football Txiki Begiristain to sign Roma midfielder De Rossi in January.

City pursued the Italy star all last summer but he stayed put.

However, De Rossi, 29, has told friends in Rome he wants to leave his hometown club and will ask for a transfer.

Roma would want in excess of £20million and the player would expect to be paid around £100,000- a-week.
