Daniele De Rossi has committed his future to Roma.

The 24-year-old Italian international has been linked with some of Europe's biggest clubs - but the central midfielder insists he is more than happy with life in the Eternal City.

"I can only imagine myself with this outfit," De Rossi he told the Italian press.

"I admit I thought about the fact that you cannot be sure of winning a lot here, even if you stay for 10 or 15 years - but you can be great in Rome even without winning and this cannot be compared to the victories I might win with another team. If you win here, you become a part of history."

De Rossi also revealed that team-mate Cristian Chivu's on-off departure was definitely on - by bidding farewell to him, with reports suggesting he is set to seal a move to Internazionale.

"I am sorry to see him go, especially as he'll be reinforcing a direct opponent in the Scudetto race and that will weaken us," he said.
