"It doesn't annoy me to hear rumours that Mutu and Di Natale will join," Mancini told Corriere dello Sport. "They are two very good players who are doing well at Fiorentina and Udinese and these kind of players are always welcome.

"I think that I could happily play alongside Mutu, given that he is also a very good central trequartista.

"Imagine a trio of Francesco Totti, Mutu and myself - it would be an amazing Roma."
