Former Man Utd star keen on Italy return

Rossi has been linked with the likes of Roma, Juventus, Napoli and Inter Milan in recent months.

Villarreal suffered relegation from La Liga last season.

Rossi’s agent, Federico Pastorello, told the Gazzetta dello Sport: “Roma had shown an interest.

“However, negotiations have proved more difficult since the player’s injury. Talks will re-open once Giuseppe returns to play.”
