Roma midfielder Daniele de Rossi insists he's happy in the capital.

De Rossi has been linked with Real Madrid and Manchester United this week.

But he insisted: "It has crossed my mind and I have wondered what it would be like to play abroad, but to be honest Rome is everything to me: it's my life.

"I don't feel as if I could be happy somewhere else. Obviously you never know what might happen, but at the moment I can't see myself playing for another club or living elsewhere."
