Manchester City have been warned they will have to table "a monstrous bid" if they are to have any hope of landing Roma star Daniele De Rossi.

The remark has come from Roma sporting director Gabriele Sabatini who has been forced to clarify comments the club would listen to offers for 29-year-old Italy international De Rossi. Sabatini has now claimed De Rossi is 'irreplaceable', although if there is one club who could afford the midfielder's services then it is the Premier League champions.

Speaking on Thursday, Sabatini said: "I never said De Rossi is not unsellable. I just made a general consideration regarding the whole of football. If a monstrous bid materialised we would evaluate it, but we are not looking for buyers for Daniele because he is a pillar of our team."
