A report from Talk Sport is today suggesting that Chelsea and Manchester City target Daniele De Rossi has said if he does leave Roma, he does not want to join the English Premier League.
Doubts over the Italian’s future have been around for a few months now as the Serie A outfit are reportedly struggling financially and can do with the cash for one of their star men.
Also, it is being suggested that the 28-year-old is not seeing eye-to-eye with the Roma manager at the moment and he could be on his way out of his boyhood club as soon as January.
This is likely to have put both City and Chelsea on red alert, but De Rossi does not want a move to England, instead he is tempted by Paris Saint Germain or Real Madrid.
The Ligue 1 outfit have signed a number of players from the Italian top flight and with former AC Milan and Juventus boss, Carlo Ancelotti, in charge, this move could suit him extremely well.
However, if the La Liga champions are interested it will be tough for him to turn down such a big offer and he may have a big decision to make.
