Chelsea allegedly in contact with Roma as de Rossi rumours swirl

Claudio Villa

Time for our semi-daily Daniele de Rossi update! This time it's from an old friend, and while it's not exactly news, it does rather strengthen the latest speculation linking the AS Roma midfielder to Chelsea.

For all of his merits (and being a lunatic Sicilian is a merit in this charming modern age), Palmeri's not someone to trust outright on transfer stories. But when he's adding a piece to a bigger puzzle, that's another thing entirely, so we should consider this more supporting evidence that the de Rossi stuff is gathering steam. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if a deal got done sometime in the next week.

So, it's poll time. Want de Rossi? Don't want him? Have your virtual say by clicking some buttons.
