Manchester United could announce the signing of 24-year-old defender


According to 90mins, it was reportedly claimed that Chelsea and Manchester United have both indicated interest in securing the services of Roma defender Gianluca Mancini.

Mancini has established himself as a vital player in Roma this season.

The 24-year-old defender participated in 24 of the Giallorossi's 27 league matches this season and scored 4 goals.

The Italian star was on loan at Roma in 2019/20 season but was signed at the beginning of this season.

The 24-year-old started his football career at serie C club, Perugia before signing to Atalanta in 2017.

The report further stated that premier league interest is not new for Mancini, having been previously tracked by Everton during his days at atalanta.

However, Manchester United and Chelsea are keen to seal a deal and Manchester United prepares to battle it out during the summer transfer window.

Although, Roma do not want to sell out Mancini as he has been considered a vital player in the club but however, every player has a price.

According to daily mirrors, the negative impact of covid-19 on the club's finance will results in clubs proposing offer of about £27m in which Roma is likely to accept.

In your opinion, do you think Manchester United should complete deal to sign this Italian star???
