Atalanta Demand £52m For Manchester United Target Cristian Romero

By Vanessa Ekpereka (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Manchester United have been rebuffed by Atalanta after making a bid of £39million for Cristian Romero.

The Old Trafford club are seeking a centre-back this summer and the 23-year-old Argentine is of interest having performed superbly last term.

According to Tuttosport in Italy, Atalanta rejected £39m from United and are holding out for £52 before they allow their star defender to depart.

Romero is currently on loan at Atalanta from Juventus until 2022 and they have the option to make the move permanent for £21.5m, which they are expected to do. 

But he is not regarded as indispensable and La Dea could cash in straight away, turning a profit on the defender. 

He made 31 Serie A appearances last season and helped Gian Piero Gasperini’s side finish third in the table. 

Romero’s performances were outstanding and he claimed the league’s defender of the year award.
