Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi has put Chelsea and Manchester City on red alert by stalling on a new contract.

The Italy international is entering the final year of his contract, and Roma director Walter Sabattini has admitted they may have to sell.

It may all end with De Rossi leaving the Serie A giants on the comparitive cheap, for a fee of less than £15million.

That could interest Chelsea and City, if they do not want to wait until he becomes a free agent.

Chelsea are looking to bolster their midfield after losing Michael Essien for six months with a knee injury.

England midfielder Scott Parker is also on their hit-list, depending on whether West Ham are willing to loan him out or want a permanent deal.

City also want to strengthen in midfield and De Rossi would be a glamorous signing.

But new Roma boss Luis Enrique insists he wants to keep the 27-year-old.

“He is very important for my plans and it would be impossible to find a replacement for him in the current market,” he said.
