AS Roma chief Franco Baldini insists they won't consider selling Daniele de Rossi.

The Italy midfielder has been linked with Manchester City and PSG in recent days after being dropped last week against Atalanta.

Baldini said: "We already decided not to sell him in the summer, so I don't think anything can change our minds. Let it be clear, we have no financial need to sell De Rossi.

"The project that started a year ago did not require sales to finance new buys. We tried over the summer to find 22 potential first choice players for the team and now it is up to the Coach on how to field them."
