Roma coach Ranieri warns Man Utd, Man City off De Rossi

Roma coach Claudio Ranieri is adamant they will not sell midfield star Daniele De Rossi.

The 26-year-old has attracted interest from across Italy and Europe, reportedly from clubs including Manchester City and Real Madrid, but the Giallorossi insist he is not for sale.

"De Rossi is going nowhere," Ranieri told Il Romanista newspaper.

"He is a pillar in this club."

Reports in Italy claimed the Eternal City giants earlier this month turned down a bid of 45 million euros from Manchester City for the Rome-born player.

De Rossi is under contract with Roma until June 2012.
