Roma coach Luciano Spalletti insists his club have not received an offer from Manchester City for midfielder Daniele de Rossi.
City are attempting to complete a world-record deal for AC Milan star Kaka, while Italy international De Rossi has also been linked with a move to the mega-rich Eastlands club.
“A multi-million offer by City for De Rossi? There has not been any offers,” said Spalletti.
“However, De Rossi is a player that is admired by many teams.
“Kaka is one of the best players we have in our league. These are players that it is difficult to do without.”
