AS Roma coach Rudi Garcia has warned Manchester United off Daniele de Rossi.

Speculation has claimed that United have offered £10million for De Rossi as manager David Moyes tries to strengthen his squad before the transfer window closes.

De Rossi has previously been linked with Chelsea and Manchester City, but Garcia does not expect to lose the 30-year-old.

"Daniele de Rossi isn't only a big player, but he's also a big man," Garcia told a press conference ahead of Sunday's game against Verona.

"He has been here at Roma for a long time and he wants to play with this jersey.

"We spoke when he came back from his holidays and we said that, if it got past a certain date, he would certainly remain with us.

"He will stay here for the whole season and this is something that satisfies me a lot."
