Talk of United needing fresh faces in midfield is nothing new and something we have banged on about here on this site too many times than you or I care to remember so The Telegraph’s claims that De Rossi is finally ready to leave Roma and name United as one of his potential destinations in an £18m move may finally allow us to change what has essentially become a broken record.
The Telegraph claim that the 27 year old has become disillusioned with life in Italy after his father in law was apparently executed in a Mafia hit and he then broke up with his wife Tamara. De Rossi, who is Roma’s vice captain, has often asserted that he would not leave the Italian capital but now wants to put this rough patch behind him and with United being one of his main suitors in the past this news will definitely pique our interest. But transfers are never easy and The Telegraph also claim Real Madrid will be watching De Rossi’s situation closely as Jose Mourinho aims to partner him with Xabi Alonso.
Scholes appears to be on his way out this summer but even if he isn’t Fergie sign him up!
