Man Utd prepared to cough up for Atalanta defender Cristian Romero

Manchester United are maintaining interest in Atalanta defender Cristian Romero.

The Argentina international, who spent last season on-loan at Atalanta from Juventus, and is attracting plenty of admiring glances from the Premier League.

Liverpool are keen on the 23-year-old centre-half, but it's United who are leading the chase for the Argentine star who made 31 appearances in Serie A last term.

L'Eco Di Bergamo says United are 'ready to invest €45million' (£38million) in the defender this summer.

Atalanta intend to trigger a permanent clause in Romero's loan deal ahead of potentially selling him for a profit.
