Manchester United are reportedly monitoring Daniele De Rossi as speculation continues to mount that he will leave Roma in the summer.

Reports suggested last month that the 27-year-old is growing increasingly frustrated with life at the Stadio Olimpico after falling out with the fans, and suffering serious problems in his personal life.

The Telegraph initially intimated that De Rossi has urged his representatives to sound out potential suitors over a transfer window move, and Chelsea are said to be an interested party.

However, Chelsea are expected to have to contend with United in their pursuit of the Italy international, with the latter having been tracking De Rossi with great interest.


According to, United have sent their top scout Martin Ferguson - brother of Old Trafford supremo Sir Alex Ferguson - to watch De Rossi on more than one occasion this season and are now considering launching a move for the £18 million-rated midfielder.

Sir Alex is thought to be a long-term admirer of De Rossi and has been keen to bring him to Old Trafford for a number of years.

This summer may represent the best chance United have had to sign the passionate Roma fan who is said to be open to a move to Old Trafford in order to kickstart his career.
