Manchester United were linked with a number of defenders to reinforce the backline in the summer but failed to lure anyone.
Things have been shaky at the back this season and in the last two games, the Red Devils have conceded 6 goals without reply.
Last night, Newcastle United ripped the Old Trafford outfit apart in their own backyard and massive reinforcements are needed in the winter transfer window.
According to Tutto Sport (via L’Interista), Man Utd want to hire the services of Giorgio Scalvini to improve their central defense.
The 19-year-old defender is also on the radar of Serie A giants, Inter Milan, but the Nerazzurri face ‘strong competition’ from the 20-time English champions.
Erik ten Hag was able to sign Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta in the summer transfer window and the media outlet have mentioned that Man Utd are in a favored position to also sign Scalvini, who is valued at around £34.8million (40 million euros) by the Italian side.
The teenage sensation has been in brilliant form for La Dea in the current campaign. So far, he has started nine games in the league and helped Gasperini’s team keep seven clean sheets.
The youngster made his senior international debut back in June 2022 and since then, he has made seven appearances for the Azzurri.
United have already let in 16 league goals in 10 games this season and have been ousted from the Carabao Cup they won last season.
In your view, should Man Utd offer £34.8million to sign Giorgio Scalvini in January?
