City still tracking De Rossi

Premiership champions Manchester City haven’t given up hope of signing Roma star Daniele De Rossi, says Sky Sports.

According to the report, the Italian international’s agent has landed in England for talks with City officials.

De Rossi was being heavily linked with a move away from his hometown club before he signed a new contract with the Giallorossi in February.

Speculation then died down once he put pen to paper on a fresh agreement at the Stadio Olimpico until June 2017.

Nevertheless, City, through boss Roberto Mancini, are still very keen on the central midfielder and are hoping to tempt Roma with a substantial offer.
