Yesterday, we cited a report in Spain revealing that Man Utd are ready to pay the asking fee to sign Scalvini from Atalanta in the winter transfer window.
An update on the transfer saga has been provided by French journalist, Seb Ecrivain, who took to X and revealed that United’s deal to sign the Italian international is close.
The Les Bons Conceil Du Sports reporter stated:
“Man Utd is not far from completing the acquisition of the talented Italian defender #Scalvini by paying £44million. Negotiations are at an advanced stage, with the club ready to fulfill the release clause of the 20-year-old”
Last summer, Manchester United broke the bank to sign Danish center forward, Rasmus Hojlund, from Atalanta.
Unfortunately, the young striker has not been able to live up to the hype and has only netted a single goal having played over 1000 minutes in the Premier League.
Now, Man Utd are pushing to sign Scalvini, who has been rock solid in the backline for La Dea.
Erik ten Hag needs urgent reinforcements in the defensive third to stop the decline at Old Trafford.
United have leaked goals on a regular basis in the current campaign due serious injury concerns and poor form at the back. In your view, who should they lure to sort the conundrum?
Should they seal the signing of Scalvini in the January transfer window?
