Manchester United ‘busca una estrella de 51 millones de libras’ para liderar la era de Sir Jim Ratcliffe a pesar de haber tenido una oferta ‘rechazada’

The defender has been one of the Serie A’s most impressive centre-backs. The Red Devils are keen to lure him to Old Trafford during the summer transfer window. United have endured a poor start to the season, winning just 10 of their opening 21 Premier League matches.

Erik ten Hag has been forced to cope with numerous injury problems in every department. His backline, in particular, has been hit hard by absences, with players like Lisandro Martinez and Harry Maguire spending extended spells on the sidelines. United’s lack of strong defensive depth has been highlighted.

According to Calciomercato, Atalanta’s Scalvini is one of United’s top targets to bolster their ranks, and they have been impressed by his displays so far this season. The 20-year-old is naturally a centre-back but has also been deployed in a holding midfield role, which will certainly be an attractive attribute to Ten Hag. Scalvini’s price tag has soared over the past few months, and only offers in the region of £51 million will be entertained at present.

United are expected to invest heavily in the summer transfer window under the watchful eye of Sir Jim Ratcliffe, and thus that fee is not out of their reach. United will be hoping that their long-term admiration of Scalvini will put them in a strong position to fend off rival interest though. Earlier this month, Sport Italia reported that Ten Hag’s side tabled a bid for the Atalanta academy graduate, but the offer was swiftly rejected as it fell short of his £51 million asking price.
