Manchester United keen on Atalanta defender Romero – report

Manchester United are keen to sign Atalanta defender Cristian Romero, SkySports News reported on Wednesday. 

United have made signing a new partner for Harry Maguire a priority this summer and Romero is high on a list of potential options including Lille’s Sven Botman and Sevilla defender Jules Kounde.

Romero is currently on loan at Atalanta from Juventus and has enjoyed a very impressive season under the charge of GianPiero Gasperini at Atalanta.

The Serie A side are set fork out £21.5m (€25m) in their obligation to buy him permanently from Juventus – but they are said to be willing to sell him on again for a fee at least in the region of £34m (€40m).

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is now able to focus on strengthening at centre-back and in midfield after re-signing striker Edinson Cavani for another season.

They are not expected to target another centre-forward despite rumours of a move for Harry Kane, of Tottenham Hotspur and Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland.
