Manchester City fail in €39.5m pursuit of Roma midfielder De Rossi

By Wayne Veysey | Chief Correspondent

Daniele De Rossi will announce at a press conference on Tuesday that he has snubbed a €39.5 million (£31m) move to Manchester City to stay at Roma, has learned.

The Premier League champions have upped their long-standing interest in the Italian international in recent days, culminating in them making two bids for the player.

Sources have told that a second City offer was submitted to Roma on Saturday, and the Premier League champions had also prepared an €8.9m- (£7m)-a-year-contract.

But De Rossi has decided to reject City’s interest and stay at the club he joined as a 17-year-old.
