Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi says his love for the city of Rome was the reason why he rejected offers from Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid throughout his career.
The Italian is one of the most influential players for Roma and is determined to become a club legend like former captain Francesco Totti.
"It wouldn't be right toward the fans for me to leave as well, in the same year," he is quoted as saying by Four Four Two.
"It's all about ambitions. For me, money, it's not something that can move me from Rome to Chelsea because I will get money in Chelsea.
"I get money in Rome, so that's not a difference – in another team I can get more money but this [extra] amount doesn't matter.
"What's more ambitious, a player who will want to go to win the Champions League in Real Madrid, or one who wants to win the league in Rome?
"Roma never won a lot of titles. In 90 years, we won three. It's been hard. I think a great ambition could be also to try to win where nobody ever won. It's more difficult."
