Daniele De Rossi reveals why he turned down Manchester United

    Roma legend Daniele De Rossi reveals that he would have liked to have actually represented Manchester United during his playing profession.

    Roma legend Daniele De Rossi has actually exposed that he was delayed finalizing for Manchester United due to the strength of their midfield.

    While De Rossi just recently retired after a quick spell at Boca Juniors, the Italian invested the bulk of his profession at Roma, making 616 appearances in all competitions.

    Although De Rossi has actually acknowledged a fondness for Man United, the 36- year-old feels that the quality of Roy Keane and Paul Scholes would have kept him out of the beginning lineup.

    Speaking With Sky Sport Italia, De Rossi stated: “Since I was a child I have loved United. It was the right choice that I didn’t go to Manchester because there was Keane and Scholes, incredible players.”

    De Rossi belonged to the Italy squad which won the World Cup in 2006.
