Atalanta to Man U:  Your £39m for Romero is good but £52m is better

Cristian Romero


Manchester United have been informed by Atalanta to improve on their £39m bid for Cristian Romero if they really want him in the fold.

A more reasonable offer in the range of  €60m (£52m)  according to Atalanta will be good to do business.

The Red Devils had supposedly been hopeful of persuading the Serie A club to cash in on the centre-back for a bid of around £39m.

Romero starred on loan with Atalanta last season and La Dea have the option to purchase the Argentina international outright for £21.5m.

According to Tuttosport, Atalanta intend to trigger that right-to-buy clause and keep Romero at the Gewiss Stadium unless a big bid is tabled.

It is not believed that United have yet made an initial approach for the 23-year-old, who earned his first senior international cap in last week’s 1-1 draw with Chile.
