Soccer: Roma willing to consider De Rossi bid from Real

Rome, November 5 - AS Roma said on Monday that they were willing to consider a bid from Real Madrid for Italy midfielder Daniele De Rossi. The Spanish champions are said be interested in signing De Rossi, who has only ever played for Roma, following reports of friction between the 29-year-old and coach Zdenek Zeman. Zeman caused a stir when he suggested lack of motivation was the reason for him dropping De Rossi, who was targeted by English champions Manchester City in the close season, for a 2-0 win over Atalanta last month. "In the summer we listened to an offer from City," Roma General Manager Franco Baldini told Sky television. "The managers have the job of managing the club and evaluating all the opportunities. On that occasion we did and we decided to pass. "If another offer arrived, we'd listen again, but we might decide to pass again".
