Man City boss Mancini determined to land Roma star De Rossi
The Daily Mail says boss Roberto Mancini remains hopeful of prising Italy international De Rossi, with reports in Italy claiming the 29-year-old hard man is set to move to the Etihad Stadium for around £30million.
"I am convinced that De Rossi stays with us," said Zeman, speaking to Sky Sports.
"He is very important for us and the club has not asked me anything about him. I think he will remain.
"Has Mancini have ever called me? Several times, even when I was at Pescara last year. The last time I heard from him was three weeks ago."
