Man City target will not leave Roma

Roma coach Claudio Ranieri insists they have no plans to sell midfielder Daniele De Rossi this summer.

The 26-year-old has been linked with clubs such as Manchester City and Real Madrid in recent weeks.

“De Rossi is going nowhere,” Ranieri told Il Romanista newspaper.

“He is a pillar in this club.”

De Rossi’s contract with Roma is set to expire in the summer of 2012.
