Roma chief Sabatini adamant De Rossi will not go to Man City

AS Roma chief Walter Sabatini is adamant they won't cash in on Daniele de Rossi. Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has confirmed his interest in buying the contract rebel.

Sabatini said: "Daniele's contract does worry me, though I think it can be resolved, as he strongly wants to stay here. It's only right he looks at the market rate and makes his requests.

"We are discussing it in a very constructive way. The club has thought of a fairly innovative type of contract. It would be a huge loss if he did leave, and Roma must be ready to accept that, but I don't think it will come to that.

"Many emissaries came to Rome, but the big money offer the media talked about never actually materialised. De Rossi has never been for sale."
