ROMA have put Manchester City on alert by admitting they will listen to offers for their skipper Daniele de Rossi in January.

City’s pursuit of the £30million-rated Italy midfielder was one of the sagas of the summer.


Roberto Mancini failed to land his number one central midfield target over the summer and opted instead to purchase Jack Rodwell and Javi Garcia from Everton and Benfica respectively. This may not mean that the Man City boss will pass up the opportunity to sign the Roma star as clearly the Italian has a penchant for spending large sums regardless of need.

The Rome born leader has racked up almost 400 appearances for his side and is now in his 12 season at the club but has on the whole failed to help the Giallorossi to succeed.

Indeed De Rossi has collected five Serie A title runners-up medals and of late has seen the club even secure Champions League football, last term’s seventh place finish cost Luis Enrique his job, and arguably this could be the right time for the tough tackling midfielder to consider a new challenge.
