Roma president Rosella Sensi insists they won't entertain offers for midfielder Daniele de Rossi.

De Rossi is a prime transfer target for Real Madrid and confessed he would only leave his hometown side if it was for the Bernabeu.

“De Rossi is a Roma player and he is not for sale,” declared Sensi. “He is a symbol of the club and a great champion, just like Totti.

“I would’ve liked to see Totti at the World Cup, as he would’ve made the difference along with De Rossi, but I respect the decisions of the Coach.

“In any case, knowing Francesco is healthy and can rest up for another wonderful season with Roma can only make me happy.”
