Franco Baldini has backtracked on what he said earlier this week and has denied that Daniele De Rossi is for sale.
Roma's General Manager had previously claimed that they would 'listen to offers' for the midfielder, but has today admitted he was 'careless' in his remarks and has reiterated the 29-year-old's importance to the Giallorossi cause.
“I was careless when I spoke about De Rossi,” he told reporters. “It is not true that we want to sell him.
“We all know how important Daniele is for this team.”
