Roma have contacted Manchester United defender Mikael Silvestre for a return to Serie A.

“I am afraid the situation with Silvestre has been complicated,†revealed Bordeaux director Marius Tresor.

“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.â€

It would be a return to the peninsula for Silvestre, who flopped in his one year at Inter in 1998-99, making just 18 Serie A appearances.

The French defender turns 31 in August and has been at Manchester United since completing a £3.5m move in 1999.

He can play both centre-back and left-back, so his versatility would be of interest to the Giallorossi.

His fitness could be a concern, though, as he was out for seven months with knee ligament damage and made his comeback in April.
