Real Madrid, Man City head-to-head for Roma contract rebel De Rossi
Real Madrid are competing with Manchester City for AS Roma midfielder Daniele de Rossi. Mediaset says it's a three-way battle for De Rossi's services, though the chances of the midfielder remaining with Roma are diminishing.
De Rossi still hasn't responded to Roma's latest contract offer, with management seeking a response by last Friday.
Sergio Berti, De Rossi's agent, has already agreed personal terms with City over a deal worth €9 million-a-year, which would see him move to England on a Bosman in June.
Real are prepared to pay €10 million for De Rossi now, despite less than six months being left on his contract.
