Good news as Man Utd receive green light to sign box-to-box midfielder

Lorenzo Pellegrini

Manchester United have reportedly received a boost in acquiring the services of Lorenzo Pellegrini from AS Roma this summer. The Italian only rejoined the Giallorossi from Sassuolo last summer and has since made 37 appearances across all competitions.

According to Calciomercato, United may have received the green light to sign Pellegrini this summer after Roma sporting director admitted that the midfielder could be headed through the exit door, he said: “There are some possibilities that we sell [Edin] Dzeko, [Kostas] Manolas or Pellegrini.”

Despite this, it is not entirely certain Pellegrini could part ways with the club with Dzeko and Manolas also mentioned whilst the recent contract extension of Marouane Fellaini has presented doubts over the club’s pursuit of another midfielder.

At full strength, summer signing Fred, Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic are very much certain to occupy the starting midfield roles and with the likes of Ander Herrera, Marouane Fellaini and Scott McTominay to provide back-up, a move does not make sense unless there is a probable exit.

Of late, Herrera has been associated with a potential return to the Spanish La Liga with Athletic Bilbao and Barcelona interested and the uncertainty behind the Spaniard’s future may trigger the need for a younger replacement.


  1. We are pretty packed in midfield and instead we should consider buying a replacement for Valencia who is getting old and has not been able to penetrate down on the right handside with his speed anymore. He can’t play as wing back anymore…

  2. United needs an experienced fullback and a wide winger. If these areas are fixed, then we are gud to go. Up reds

  3. his gud move for him but let also fellaini should leave the we still need to strenght our sqaud by signing of willian,boateny and alex sandro

  4. Please hurry up to buy Williams from Chelsea to play on the right and get possible back up for Valencia including lawandoskie of Baryarnmunich. This is the only way we will win the premiere league and champion league as well.

  5. Man U needs to buy maguire, pellegrini,William plus one more striker then we shall compete with city but united normal scouts for other clubs that end up winning the league, like united talked of Riyad then dropped off interest but now the noisy neighbors have taken him we shall see regrets. Come on United, we are the richest club in the whole world so spend inorder to win.
