Agent: Roma's Mexes rejected Real Madrid

The agent of Philippe Mexes insists the defender is committed to Roma.

Olivier Jouanneux said: "When it became known that Cristian Chivu wasn't going to Real Madrid (last year) and already there was no more Baldini or Capello at the club, an executive from Madrid called me. Before they chose Pepe.

"Phil reiterated once again his choice, Roma. And it's true that elsewhere he could earn even more. But he is so happy, not watching the grass grow nearby."
