Giallorossi were reportedly willing to sell.
Roma were willing to allow midfielder Daniele De Rossi to leave the club, but the Italian rejected the chance to join Manchester United.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Premier League giants proposed a €12m bid for the 30-year-old, offering him €6.5m per year as they look to address their issues in midfield.
It is understood that director of sport Walter Sabatini then considered the bid and suggested that the Italian international was available for transfer, but the final decision would be with the player on whether or not he wanted to leave.
However, De Rossi is believed to have rejected the opportunity to play in England, as he looks to help his hometown club improve on a disappointing season last year.
Having grown through the club youth ranks, De Rossi is said to be fascinated by the prospect of continuing to work under Rudi Garcia, with the French tactician stressing that his midfield trio of the Italian, Kevin Strootman and Miralem Pjanic will be the strength of his team this year.
Nevertheless, the decision of the club to listen to offers for their talismanic midfielder comes as a surprise to most given that they have already sold the likes of Marquinhos, Erik Lamela and Pablo Osvaldo this summer.
Those sales were forced on the club as they looked to balance the books after a summer of spending, which in turn led many to believe that there was no real need to sell De Rossi.
However, despite the club’s willingness to discuss a deal, De Rossi has ended the speculation and will continue his career with the capital club.
