AS Roma coach Rudi Garcia is confident that Daniele de Rossi will remain with the club this season despite reported interest from Manchester United.
Speculation has surfaced claiming that David Moyes has put in an offer for the 30-year-old as he continued to look to strengthen his midfield.
Garcia, though, says that the Italy international, who was previously linked with Chelsea and Manchester City in the past, will not leave so late in the transfer window.
"Daniele de Rossi isn't only a big player, but he's also a big man," Garcia told a press conference ahead of Sunday's game against Verona.
"He has been here at Roma for a long time and he wants to play with this jersey.
"We spoke when he came back from his holidays and we said that, if it got past a certain date, he would certainly remain with us.
"He will stay here for the whole season and this is something that satisfies me a lot."
