Daniele De Rossi: Praised by Rudi Garcia

De Rossi has been linked with a move away from the Stadio Olimpico with Chelsea reportedly keen on the 29-year-old Italy international.

But when asked about the star's future, Garcia told reporters: "He is a great player and surely it's better to have him with us than to see him leave."

Garcia appeared more relaxed about the future of Pablo Osvaldo and Marquinhos, adding: "They are still with us, we would like to keep the best players. But if they were to leave, we will replace them.

One player who will be joining Roma is goalkeeper Lukasz Skorupski after the 22-year-old passed a medical and signed a contract with the Serie A side on Friday.

Skorupski has played over 50 games in the Polish Ekstraklasa for Gornik Zabrze, gaining himself a reputation as a solid and promising goalkeeper.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
