Man United closely monitoring €40m-rated Serie A defensive rock

Red Devils keen on signing Milan defender Alessio Romagnoli and ready to compete with Chelsea for the footballer. Man United need a new high-class centre-back to strengthen the back-line and Italy international is the perfect choice in this situation. He has an amazing campaign and proved his greatness one more time. Ole Gunnar will do everything to add him in July when the transfer window opens again. Blues also keen to sign him and there will be a real battle for the player. His price could increase and become much more.

Romagnoli joined the Italian club from Roma in 2015 with a £25m deal. He is one of the best defenders in Serie A and unchanged figure for the club. In this season, Alessio already played 27 matches and scored 2 goals in all tournament. This is an impressive result and he can do much more with high-class teammates. The 24-year-old centre-back is contracted with the Rossoneri until 2022 and his release clause is around £40m.

He is a regular member of the national team which is already a big success for the defender. English club set to pay big money for the footballer as Eric Bailly and Marcos Rojo heavily linked with several big clubs and his replacement is necessary. It will be very difficult to sign him as Milan planning to win titles and they aren’t going to sell such an important player during the transfer window. Red Devils also linked with Ajax centre-back Matthijs de Ligt and Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane.
