Roma chief: Mexes and De Rossi will not be sold in January

    Both players have been linked with Spanish giants Real Madrid.

    Prade said: “De Rossi is a long-term part of our plan and is not for sale. He now identifies perfectly with Roma. Mexes? He’s a great defender who is a goal for all the great clubs, but our intention is to keep him. In January we will begin to discuss about these contractual situations.”
