AS Roma sports chief Walter Sabatini says they're counting on Daniele de Rossi next season.

The midfielder has been linked with a move away this summer.

De Rossi was spotted at the Trigoria training ground yesterday for a meeting with new coach Luis Enrique.

"He has to stay at Roma," insisted Sabatini. "I met with De Rossi and saw in him fierce motivation to do well here."
