Italian media claim Chelsea are making an offer for Daniele De Rossi after Roma confirmed he’s on the market.
Calciomercato.it suggests today that Jose Mourinho is renewing his interest in the Italy midfielder, having already tried to sign him at Inter and Real Madrid.
De Rossi is more likely than ever to leave the Stadio Olimpico after a difficult campaign in which his rapport with the fans and club hit a new low.
This week Roma President James Pallotta confirmed “everybody is on the market,” including their ‘future captain.’
However, the website claims Chelsea have only offered around €10m - £8.5m – which is not enough to tempt the Giallorossi into a sale.
De Rossi is also of interest to Manchester City and Manchester United.
