Man City offer De Rossi £160,000-a-week to quit Roma

Manchester City are ready to make a January move for AS Roma star Daniele de Rossi.

The Daily Star says City have offered De Rossi a bank-busting £160,000-a-week deal in a bid to lure him to the Etihad Stadium.

Boss Roberto Mancini is a huge admirer of the Italian and wants to land him in the January window as his next big-name signing at the Premier League leaders.

De Rossi, 28, is out of contract at Roma in the summer after failing to agree a new deal. The Italian international has spent all his career at Roma after joining his hometown club as a teenager and is reluctant to leave.

But Mancini is hoping to tempt De Rossi with a long-term deal worth more than £7m-a-season that would make him one of his highest-paid stars.
