Roma have denied reports that they were in talks with Paris Saint-Germain to exchange Daniele De Rossi with Marco Verratti.
The stories emerged this morning that De Rossi would join Carlo Ancelotti in France, while Verratti would be reunited with his old Pescara Coach Zdenek Zeman.
“There has never been anything between PSG and Roma with regards to De Rossi’s situation,” assured director Walter Sabatini on Radio Montecarlo.
“There are no meetings planned for him or for Verratti.”
It is widely believed that Zeman was asked to reintroduce De Rossi to his Roma side as part of crisis talks with the club hierarchy this week.
