Manchester City target Danielle De Rossi is expected to sign a new deal with Roma, according to the Serie A giants.

The Italian World Cup winner is yet to commit his future to the club after talks broke down surrounding an extension to his current deal, a collapse that had alerted Manchester City, whose manager Roberto Mancini is a known admirer of the midfielder.

However, Roma chief executive Claudio Fenucci says the complex talks have close to completion.

"The operation is complex," he told Il Romanista.

"I don't think he has assessed any other proposals and is considering the option to renew his contract with Roma on top terms.

"Negotiations are ongoing, we are talking with his agent and will meet again soon.

"We are trying to fix all of the details and are looking for a solution. We are making every possible effort given the resources available.

"My perception is that we will reach an agreement. Because of the love that De Rossi has for Roma, I am sure he will not sign with anyone else until he has explored all options to extend his contract here."

Mancini has refused to hold back in his admiration of De Rossi, a player he feels would make a great contribution should he sign for the Premier League leaders.

"De Rossi? He is a champion and he would be the perfect man to improve City," he said.

"If we get the right signals, it is right that we try for him."
