Roma are in talks with Manchester United for Louis Saha and Mikael Silvestre.

Roma coach Luciano Spalletti met with his board on Tuesday to discuss their summer transfer plans - which led to a deal being closed for Liverpool fullback John Arne Riise.

United pair Saha and Silvestre were also discussed and Roma are now actively seeking to take both Frenchmen on-loan for the new season with the option of signing them permanently next June.
