Roma have insisted that Premier League target Daniele De Rossi will not be leaving the club this summer.
The 27-year-old has been strongly linked with the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea, and he has just one-year left on his current deal.
But the Italian giants are adamant that De Rossi will not be sold and they hope to tie him down to a new deal.
"De Rossi's sale is not on the agenda, just as his contract renewal negotiations are not on the agenda for today," director of sport Walter Sabatini told the Gazzetta dello Sport.
"I cannot weaken the side. By selling De Rossi and then bringing in Javier Pastore or anyone else, I would still be weakening Roma.
"I have spoken to Daniele, we will speak with his agent and make an offer."
