Super agent Vincenzo Morabito feels it appears more likely Daniele de Rossi will leave AS Roma. The Roma midfield ace is off contract in June and a target for Manchester City and Inter Milan.

Morabito told TMW: "I think as more and more time passes the situation becomes more difficult and there is an agent involved who has never spoken.

"(Sergio) Berti is an old-fashioned agent and is not sympathetic to the situation.

"Today there is renewed energy on a meeting point, it is accelerated because in January De Rossi can sign a pre-contract (with another club) that would start from July 1."
