Manchester United are set to battle with Chelsea for Genoa wonderkid Pietro Pellegri and he will cost around £40million, according to the Sun.

Manchester United’s current attacking lineup looks very strong due to the presence of superstar striker Romelu Lukaku as well as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who will be returning in January.

That said United probably need to sign a new forward next summer due to the possibility of losing the veteran Ibrahimovic at the end of the season and the Red Devils are already said to have identified various targets to pursue.

While United also have Marcus Rashford capable of playing in the striker’s position, the Red Devils are said to be looking to sign another one of the biggest prospects in Europe by acquiring the services of Genoa wonderkid Pietro Pellegri.

Pellegri is a 16-year-old attacker who has already scored 3 goals in 6 league appearances for Genoa so far this season and such performances have attracted the interest from a host of top clubs across Europe, along with United.

United are now expected to be fighting it out with Premier League side Chelsea for the signature of Pellegri and the Sun have claimed that Genoa have placed an asking price of around £40million for the teenage sensation.

United already boast a young and vibrant attacking line-up which includes Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Lukaku and another talented player such as Pellegri will fit straight in at Old Trafford.

All of the aforementioned layers are certain to become stars of the future and if United land Pellegri, they might just be able to bring back the glory days to the Red half of Manchester.
