Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini has confirmed Daniele De Rossi will be offered a new contract.

Essien out for six months
Lippi expects De Rossi stay

De Rossi, 27, has just one year remaining on his contract and has been linked with a move to Chelsea as a replacement for the injured Michael Essien.

However, Sabatini remains optimistic that De Rossi will extend his contract with his hometown club.

"We are working with the maximum calmness," he said. "I have spoken to Daniele. We will speak to his agent and we will make an offer."

De Rossi suggested that he had become disillusioned with life at the club in March, although there have since been huge changes.
