Real Madrid Will Have To Pay Roma €40m For Daniele De Rossi – Report

According to fresh reports in Spain, Roma have now officially put a price tag on Italian midfielder Daniele De Rossi.

The 26-year-old is increasingly being linked with a move to Real Madrid and latest reports claim the two clubs are now in talks regarding a potential transfer.

According to Spanish daily AS, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez met with FIFA transfer agent Ernesto Bronzetti, who had recently denied there was any truth to the transfer rumours, in Albania last night where Real Madrid had travelled to take part in a friendly match.

The reports claim Perez was discussing a potential deal that would see De Rossi arrive in Madrid after the World Cup this summer. Roma are said to be extremely reluctant to sell the player but may be willing to discuss the possibility of a move if Real Madrid can meet their €40 million asking price.

The Merengues reportedly want to add an extra bit of bite to the midfield and see the Italian international as the perfect partner for Xabi Alonso.
