Daniele De Rossi has insisted he is unaware of any interest from Manchester City as speculation mounts over his Roma future.

The Italy midfielder's contract has just one year left to run and he is currently in discussions with the club.

If Roma do not get him to extend his agreement they risk losing him for nothing next summer, and there have been contrasting reports about how the negotiations are progressing.

Manchester City have been linked with a swoop for De Rossi but he denies having been contacted by the big-spending Premier League club.

The 28-year-old is growing tired of all the transfer talk and has made it clear he will share any news when there are developments.

"You journalists come up with something new every day," De Rossi told Sky Sport Italia.

Nothing concrete

"One day I'm close to a renewal, one day I've turned down who knows what offer, one day I accept another. There really isn't a need to say anything.

"It's an important situation, there are a lot of people who are waiting for an outcome and we have to do what is right, but I'm totally calm.

"Every day I read false information, absurd stories and mad figures that have no place in the air or on the ground.

"When there is something concrete to talk about then I will.

"Am I liked by Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini? You'd have to ask him. I have spoken to nobody nor heard from anybody."
