Manchester United are ready to go face to face with some of Europe’s elite as they are ready to fight for AC Milan’s Alessio Romagnoli. The 26-year-old is without a contract at the San Siro next year and his club is reportedly ready to make money instead of losing him on a free transfer in 12 months.
According to MilanNews, the Italian club is in talks with the defender about his future and a possible extension, but is aware that with a year left on his contract, other clubs may circulate.
Simon Kjær’s brilliant debut season and Fikayo Tomori’s appearance in the second half of the season have seen Romagnoli fall out of favor under Pioli and could consider his future.
The report goes on to add that Romagnoli is mainly ‘admired’ by Barcelona, but also by Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Tottenham. Recently snubbed from Italy’s Euro 2020 team, the AC Milan captain could be ready to leave his club.
Manchester United have a long-standing interest in a center-back and are looking for a partner for Harry Maguire. Solskjær prefers to play with right foot in the middle of the left foot, which would work with Romagnoli.
