Manchester United plan to raid Roma for highly-rated midfielder

    Manchester United will reportedly try to exploit Lorenzo Pellegrini’s ‘low’ €30m release clause next January to take him away from AS Roma.

    Frustrated by the performance of Fred and Paul Pogba, Jose Mourinho is determined to bolster his midfield department ahead of the second half of the season.

    After splashing out £60m to get the Brazilian midfielder, who barely recorded seven top-flight outings this year, the Portuguese manager has set his sights on the highly-rated AS Roma youngster.

    According to the Italian news outlet, Calciomercato, the Red Devils will step up their interest in the 22-year-old in the next transfer session after the Giallorossi failed to adjust terms in Pellegrini’s contract.

    After an impressive season at Sassuolo, the Rome native has maintained an outstanding form in the Italian capital becoming one of the pillars of this Roma side.

    Arguably one of the best Serie A midfielder last year, Pellegrini is projected as Daniele De Rossi’s heir once the legendary Roma stalwart hangs up his boots.

    However, the Roma management is yet to convince their No.7 to commit his long-term future to the club, which works in Man Utd’s favor.
