If reports in the media are anything to go by then AS Roma are willing to sell Nicolo Zaniolo to Manchester United.
The Italian international has been a key player for the Giallorossi but his relationship with the club is now in tatters.
According to Area Napoli, the 23-year-old is on the sidelines after refusing to take part in the last Serie A fixture against Spezia.
The news source have reported that Tottenham Hotspur are pressing to hire his services but the north Londoners only want him on loan.
On the other hand, it is reported that the Azzurri playmaker has been offered to Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain. As per a recent report covered by The Mail, Roma want £35million from the sale of Zaniolo.
The versatile attacker can play on the right flank, as a central attacking midfielder and even as a secondary striker.
Last season, he directly contributed in 17 goals under the management of Jose Mourinho. It must be remembered that the 11-capped international netted the winning goal in the UEFA Conference League final, Roma’s first every European trophy.
However, things have turned sour this term. Recently, sporting director, Tiago Pinto, has criticized the player and claimed (via Roma Press):
“Someone tried putting individual interests ahead of those of the team.”
Man Utd broke the bank to sign Antony in the summer and have lured Weghorst on loan in the winter transfer window. To date, Ten Hag’s attacking signings have not been able to perform at the optimum level, especially the Brazilian star.
In such a scenario, do you think the Dutch manager needs to sign another attacker? Should he pay £35million to sign Nicolo Zaniolo?
