Manchester United, under new partial ownership by Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s INEOS, are reportedly eyeing a potential transfer move for Atalanta’s highly-rated young defender, Giorgio Scalvini.
The 20-year-old, also on the radar of Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, is considered a “complete” player, impressing talent scouts with his performances.
As negotiations over the extent of INEOS’s role in footballing matters continue, it’s suggested that the Red Devils might have limited spending power in the upcoming January window, with a preference for more significant investments in the summer.
However, reports indicate United’s admiration for Scalvini and their willingness to explore a potential deal, despite the challenging €50 million (£43 million) asking price set by Atalanta.
Scalvini, an Italy international, has showcased his skills in 20 appearances across various competitions this season, contributing with one goal and one assist.
With uncertainty surrounding Raphael Varane’s future at Old Trafford and his contract set to expire, Scalvini emerges as a promising candidate for bolstering Manchester United’s defense in the long term, providing stability and potential reinforcements in the upcoming transfer windows.
