But Bronzetti, who has close ties to Real, said: “Real Madrid will never ask for De Rossi. Saying that De Rossi is one of the best midfielders in the world seems normal to me.
“It's also normal that the best clubs in the world like him starting with Real Madrid. But Florentino Perez has a relationship of respect and friendship with the Sensi family and would never ask for the player.
“Roma, on the other hand, know that in the moment they need to sell De Rossi, Real would be ready.”
