Silvestre attracts new suitor

15 Jun 2008 - 15:20:31

AS Roma have joined Bordeaux in the race to sign defender Mikael Silvestre from Manchester United.

Silvestre, 30, is expected to end his nine-year stay at Old Trafford this summer after falling well down Sir Alex Ferguson's first-team pecking order.

The former Internazionale defender has long been tracked by Bordeaux, but now Roma have reportedly joined the race for his signature on a permanent deal, rather than the French side's loan basis.

"I am afraid the situation with Silvestre has been complicated," Bordeaux director Marius Tresor told French media.

"I met him recently and he told me he had just been contacted by Roma.

"Both clubs are interested in the player, but there is the risk he'll find a permanent transfer to Roma more attractive than a loan to Bordeaux."

Silvestre has made just 23 appearances for United during the last two seasons after being sidelined by a dislocated shoulder and serious knee ligament damage.
