Manchester United is keen on landing a defender this summer to bolster their defense.
Ole Gunnar Solksjaer is determined to sign an experienced center-back this window to partner Harry Maguire.
Raphael Varane, Jules Kounde, and Pau Torres have emerged as high-profile defenders linked to Old Trafford.
Nonetheless, a new target has emerged to be Atalanta’s 23-year-old Cristian Romero.
The Italian club values him at £39m despite playing on loan from Juventus this season.
According to Sport Review, they hope to complete his deal for just £21.5m and make a massive 17.5m profit if they sell to United.
Nevertheless, FootballTalk understands Manchester United is not directly interested in the youngster as reported by transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.
Cristian Romero’s camp denying any proposal from Man United. Atalanta denying too, they’ve never received €45m bid. There’s nothing serious or advanced going on between #MUFC and Romero as of today… good player, appreciated but nothing going on now
