Italian defender Christian Panucci has rejected the recent speculation surrounding Roma's finances - which had suggested his time with Giallorossi is to end in the summer.

Roma president Franco Sensi has indicated this week that the club's future is still doubtful due to severe financial troubles.

It has been suggested that a number of players will be have to be sacrificed in a summer clearout - but Panucci insists he will not be leaving the capital.

"My future is to play for Roma still," he told club's official TV station.

"There is not any other team able to change my mind."

Meanwhile, it appears that Real Madrid officials, who have spent the past few days in Rome, have had contact with the club with regards to the possible acquisition of Giallorossi pair Emerson and Walter Samuel.

The Brazilian midfielder is reportedly also eyed by Juventus and Internazionale, whilst it appears the Argentinian defender is destined to be wearing Chelsea colours next season.
