Chelsea Line Up £10million Bid for Roma’s Daniele de Rossi: Daily Soccer Report

daniele de rossi Chelsea Line Up £10million Bid for Romas Daniele de Rossi: Daily Soccer Report

Chelsea are reportedly lining up a £10million bid for Daniele de Rossi after Roma president James Pallotta admitted that “everybody is on the market,” according to The Daily Mirror newspaper.

The 29-year-old Italian defensive midfielder is being seen as an ideal replacement for John Obi Mikel. Mourinho tried to sign de Rossi when The Special One was at Inter Milan and Real Madrid, but now circumstances have changed where Roma fans have turned on de Rossi and the club has not qualified for the Champions League nor Europa League for next season.

What’s your opinion about de Rossi? Would he be a good signing for Chelsea as a defensive midfielder? Or is £10million too much for a 29-year-old footballer? Share your opinions in the comments section below.
