Giallorossi in advanced talks with Man United midfielder Fred Santos and preparing to make an offer in July when the transfer window opens again. The Italian club have problems in the squad as Steven N’zonzi already 31-year-old, Lorenzo Pellegrini and Nicolo Zaniolo linked with several clubs and they need replacement.
Brazil international is the best choice in this situation as he also keen to get regular game time and set to listen to offers from the clubs. Paulo Fonseca ready to spend considerable money on the footballer during the summer transfer window.
The 26-year-old midfielder joined the Red Devils from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2018 with a €60m deal. He spent this season on the bench, which is bad for his career. In this campaign, Brazilian star made just 25 appearances, scored one goal and provided one assist in all tournament.
It is an excellent result, and he can improve his consequences if he gets a regular place in the starting line-up. Fred has contracted with Man United until 2023, and his release clause is nearly €30m. He also named in the national team squad several times which is already a great success for the footballer.
Probably Santos will accept the correct offer from the Portuguese manager. Roma had good result in Serie A as they finished the competition in a sixth place and got the Europa League ticket. Italian club lost the Champions League second playoff match against Porto 3-1 and kicked out from the tournament. Giallorossi signed several players last summer like Javier Pastore from PSG, Justin Kluivert from Ajax and Steven N’zonzi from Sevilla.
