Roma are prepared to risk losing Daniele De Rossi on a free next summer by keeping him at Stadio Olimpico.
The midfielder is currently locked in contract talks with the Serie A giants, but has failed to reach an agreement.
A failure to tie the Italy international down on fresh terms has sparked speculation that De Rossi could soon be on the move.
There is no shortage of willing takers, with a handful of clubs in England believed to be keen on doing a deal.
Roma, though, insist they have no plans to sell, with it their intention to thrash out a new deal with the 28-year-old or let him leave for nothing in 2012.
Sporting director Walter Sabatini said: "He's not the subject of offers at the moment.
"We are still negotiating with him regarding a contract renewal.
"If those talks do not end positively, we will risk losing him next summer as a free agent. I would rather take that risk than sell him now.
"But, having said that, things can often happen quite suddenly in football."
While Roma are reluctant to part with De Rossi, Sabatini admits Mirko Vucinic is set to leave the club and has already snubbed one approach.
"I said no to a big team, but his departure is almost inevitable," he said. "We will try and replace him the best we can.
"He has already turned down one offer, but he is looking to move abroad."
