Roma chief Monchi reveals Chelsea Dzeko offer - and their response

Roma chief Monchi has revealed Chelsea have made an offer for Edin Dzeko.

However, Monchi says the bid falls short of their valuation.

Roma, like every club in the world, listen to the offers that arrive for their players, not just for Edin, but anyone in the squad," the director of sport told Mediaset Premium.

“We are ready to listen and then we decide. Now Dzeko is here and the rest doesn't matter, which means the offer that arrived is not interesting.

“I don't know what personal terms were offered to the player, as I am not his agent. I am talking about Roma: an offer arrives, we look at it and then decide.

“A director of sport must look at the economic and sporting aspect, that is the point of the role. I am a director, I must consider both, otherwise tomorrow I would've gone to sign Leo Messi.

“We must win to change the dynamics of the last few games. We had a good performance against Inter and today need an even better one."
