Roma determined to fight Man City for De Rossi stay

AS Roma are determined to fight off any bid from Manchester City for midfielder Daniele de Rossi.

Rome sources say the Giallorossi expect a bid to soon be tabled by City for their star man.

City boss Roberto Mancini has been a long-term fan of De Rossi and hopes to convince Roma to sell for £25 million.

For the moment, no fax has been received at Trigoria, with Roma officials adamant they're determined to give any City offer short shrift should one arrive.
