Manchester United are being linked with AS Roma midfielder Daniele de Rossi.

TMW says with De Rossi continuing to baulk at opening new contract talks, a move to England is looking a serious option for the Italy ace.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has followed De Rossi since he first broke into Roma's first team and knows he now has less than two years to run on his current deal.

Roma powerbrokers are already concerned they will lose De Rossi - and cheaply - next summer.

The all-action midfielder's style is viewed as ideal for the Premier League and Ferguson is expected to wait until the final weeks of the season before beginning the groundwork to bring De Rossi to Old Trafford.
