Man Utd in agent contact for Roma starlet Riccardo Calafiori

Roma starlet Riccardo Calafiori is a target for Manchester United.

The Daily Star says United have entered the race to sign Calafiori.

The Red Devils have watched the 18-year-old left back playing for Roma's youth team several times this season.

And the Old Trafford giants have now sounded out his agent Mino Raiola about a possible transfer.

Calafiori, who is under contract with Roma until 2022, is already wanted by Paris Saint-Germain.

And he has been offered a bumper new contract in a bid to convince him to stay, with Roma keen to bring him into the first-team squad next season.

Technical staff at the club also believe that while the Italy Under 19 international is a top prospect, it's too early for him to move abroad. But it is understood Roma would be willing sellers at the right price and are hoping to encourage an auction.
