Roma-Rolando link rejected

Roma have not shown an interest in Porto stopper Rolando, his agent has stated. "There is only Juventus in Italy."

The 25-year-old has been associated with the Giallorossi in recent weeks given their need for a new central defender.

Roma will lose Philippe Mexes on a free transfer this summer, probably to Milan, and a new centre-back is a priority.

"There are absolutely no meetings planned with Roma," Peppino Tirri told calciomercato.it. "In Italy there is only Juventus who are interested."

Porto signed the Portugal international from Belenenses in 2008 and he's just enjoyed a hugely successful season with the outfit.

"What are the chances of him leaving? It depends on who wants to sign him," Tirri continued. "He could leave at the right price."
