Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini dismissed the possibility of bringing Daniele de Rossi in January 2012. Mancini aware, De Rossi opportunity to leave AS Roma is quite small.
De Rossi is often linked with Man. City in recent weeks. Moreover, his contract with Roma so far still not completed. In addition, the departure of Yaya Toure defended the Ivory Coast in African Nations Cup in January-February 2012 made the intention of bringing De Rossi getting stronger.
However, while Mancini admitted it is doubtful whether De Rossi could be carried off from I Lupi. De Rossi's status as one of the icons of Roma make the chances of any club would be difficult to recruit him.
"I do not think so. De Rossi was born in Roma and it's unlikely he would leave the city. There are players who can be good for us. But every time we want to buy the player, his club asking for a lot of money," said Mancini.
Mancini himself admitted his chance to actually remove some of the players on the transfer market next winter. Carlos Tevez is almost certainly dumped. Just waiting for serious enthusiasts. Meanwhile, Wayne Bridge and Nedum Onuoha is also going to unplug. Interestingly, Mancini admitted it had asked the club owner, Sheikh Mansour to bring Lionel Messi from Barcelona, although he was aware that it is almost impossible.
"We need to sell two or three players and then we will see later. Until now we have been fortunate to have not injured players seriously enough. I hope to be like that in January, but if not, we may have time to buy one. It is not easy. I asked the owner to bring in (Lionel) Messi, but it is not possible, "added Mancini
