However, if the chance of a future move to the USA ever came up, De Rossi has indicated that he would jump at it.
"I was born in Rome and it is the normal thing for me to play for AS Roma," he told the New York Times.
"I've never wanted to wear another jersey: I love this city, I love this club, everything I love is here.
"If any club wants me for real, they will talk with my agent. But I am 29, and leaving Roma would be a tragedy for me.
"In the future I would like to have an experience in the United States."
