Roma manager Eusebio di Francesco has revealed that new Marseille signing wanted Roma exit this summer.

About two days ago, Marseille had confirmed the signing of Roma midfielder Strootman for a fee of 25 million euros. The Dutchman left the club five years after he had arrived at the Stadio Olimpico from PSV Eindhoven.

During his pre-game press conference ahead of the clash against AC Milan, Eusebio di Francesco was asked about Strootman's exit. He revealed that the midfielder himself wanted to move.

Di Francesco said: "I spoke to the player and we said goodbye. He had a desire for a new experience.

"I mean that at Roma, I want players who have the desire to wear this shirt. Kevin played until the last game as a success with Dzeko, who could have gone away last year. If a player asks to go I do not hold anyone back. "
