Russia coach Fabio Capello has revealed Manchester United boss David Moyes sought his opinion on Daniele de Rossi over this summer. The AS Roma midfielder was linked with United and Chelsea during the close-season.

"Moyes asked me a few months ago my opinion about De Rossi," revealed Capello. "I could only be positive.

"If I was De Rossi, I would have gone to Manchester United. This is a team with great ambition."
