Man Utd make opening offer for Atalanta defender Cristian Romero

Manchester United have made an offer for Atalanta defender Cristian Romero.

Tuttosport says United have been rebuffed by Atalanta after making a bid of £39million for Romero.

The Old Trafford club are seeking a centre-back this summer and the 23-year-old Argentine is of interest having performed superbly last term.

Atalanta rejected £39m from United and are holding out for £52 before they allow their star defender to depart.

Romero is currently on loan at Atalanta from Juventus until 2022 and they have the option to make the move permanent for £21.5m, which they are expected to do.

But he is not regarded as indispensable and La Dea could cash in straight away, turning a profit on the defender.
