Chelsea could make an astonishing move for Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi, the Gazzetta dello Sport have revealed.
The Milan-based newspaper have claimed this morning that the Premier League club could make a €24m bid for the vice-captain.
The 29-year-old has been plagued with injuries this term, playing just 25 games in a disappointing season for the Giallorossi.
New Blues' boss Jose Mourinho is said to be a huge fan of De Rossi, but the Gazzetta also believe that Real Madrid cannot be ruled out of any potential move for the midfielder.
