English tabloid The Sun claims the Roma hero has fallen out with coach Zdenek Zeman and this will pave the way for City coach Roberto Mancini to get his man at the third time of asking.
Mancini was knocked back in his attempts to sign the Italy international with the 29-year-old signing a new five-year deal with Roma in February.
However, the report from the UK title implies that De Rossi clashed with Zeman after a 4-1 loss to Juventus, which saw the midfielder dropped for the next game against Atalanta.
It went on to state that City can sew up a deal for the player with a £30million bid and a £180,000 a week contract offer.
Roma are currently in fifth position in Serie A after seven games and all eyes will be on Zeman this weekend to see whether or not he selects De Rossi for Sunday's trip to Genoa.
