United played Roma on Thursday in the Europa League semi-final and there are fresh reports the clubs could take part in a player exchange deal this summer.
The Red Devils are said to be monitoring midfielder Nicolò Zaniolo, the highly-rated 21-year-old midfielder of the Giallorossi.
As cited by Roma News and as highlighted by Sport Witness from La Repubblica, the Italian international is high on the Old Trafford radar despite currently recovering from another knee ligament injury – meaning he has not featured this campaign.
His fitness problems have potentially lowered his asking price and United are not being put off by his injury record, with a swap deal with Donny van de Beek suggested.
However, Zaniolo is the prized asset for the Rome club and structuring a deal could prove difficult.
