Man United are hot on the heels of Juventus centre-back, Christian Romero.
It’s common knowledge that Manchester United’s biggest need going into the summer is a new centre-half. Raphael Varane seems to be the name that pops up most, though interest in Romero is nothing new.
Anyway, Aire de Santa Fe make a pretty big claim. They say that the Reds want a deal for the Argentine this summer, though Juventus and/or Atalanta will no doubt want to keep ahold of the young star.
Apparently, United are ‘willing to pay’ £39 (€45m) to sign the 23-year-old defender, who is currently with Argentina ahead of the Copa America.
Romero is actually owned by Juventus, though Atalanta have the option to make his current loan deal into a permanent transfer by paying more than £13m. Then, Atalanta could sell Romero for three times that amount almost immediately.
This isn’t a player I’ve seen an awful lot of, though at this point, I’d be willing to take a chance on anyone. The Red Devils are in desperate need of a top-quality centre-half to partner Harry Maguire. Maybe Romero is that man.
The talent is there as you don’t win the Serie A’s ‘best centre-back’ award without having ability. He’s also now a mainstay at the international level for one of the better sides on the globe. Make no mistake about it, Romero can obviously play, it’s just a question of whether he’d be able to adapt to the English game.
