Daniele De Rossi: Linked with move to Manchester United in the summer

United were linked with a move for De Rossi during the summer transfer window as Moyes looked to bolster his midfield options.

United were reported to have had a bid for De Rossi turned down by Roma and Capello claims Moyes did seek his expert opinion on his fellow Italian having worked with him during his time in charge with the Giallorossi.

The former England manager also revealed that if he was De Rossi he would have pushed for a move to Old Trafford.

"A few months ago David Moyes asked me for my opinion about De Rossi and my opinion could only be positive," Capello told Fox Sports.

"If I were De Rossi, I would have gone to Manchester United.

"I would have wanted to go to a club where the ambition is very high."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
