Current captain Francesco Totti took the chance of wishing his teammate a happy birthday to slip in a little message asking the star to honour the club by extending his contract.
The Blues have been interested in landing De Rossi this summer and recent reports in Italy have suggested the Rome based club could be ready to cash in on the ageing star.
The Italian giants have made it clear in the past anyone is for sale, and the new American owners are thought to be keen to wipe De Rossi's pay off the wage-bill.
Totti said in the special Roma channel message: "Best wishes for turning 30 Daniele, even though you are getting old now and are practically finished.
"It will be best if you give us a present rather than the other way around, so stay here at Roma and we will win something beautiful together."
