AS Roma management have shut down talk of moving for Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi.

Rossi was linked with a move to Roma this week.

“To be honest, we are talking about something that makes little sense,” director general Franco Baldini told Sky Sport Italia.

“Unfortunately he has picked up an injury which will see him sidelined for some time and will require a further operation.

“He would return to action in March in the best case scenario, so what credibility would there be in such a swoop?

“He was of interest to us before he was sidelined, but everything would have to be re-examined now. We can not say that he is a market objective.”
