Manchester United Opinion – Should Red Devils sign Alessio Romagnoli?
The 24-year-old became the captain of Gennaro Gattuso’s men last summer after Leonardo Bonucci left them for Juventus. Since then, he has been pivotal to the team’s top-four push in the Serie A, as they seek to play Champions League football next season. (MEN)
As per the report, United will be in the market for a central defender, and the Italian seems to be on their radar. The player has been rejecting moves away from Milan in the past, so it might need a good offer to possibly attract him away from San Siro. (MEN)
Here’s why the Red Devils should do everything in their might to sign Romagnoli in the summer:
The Italian could be a perfect partner for Lindelof
Alessio Romagnoli is a left-footed centre-back who possesses the attributes to fit into the United setup as soon as he arrives at Old Trafford. If this season is any evidence, he could be an ideal partner to Victor Lindelof, who is slowly cementing his place at Old Trafford.
The 24-year-old is a dominant player, who is good at passing, winning aerial duels, making tackles and interceptions. Furthermore, he has the recovery pace to play in a high defensive line and track back to stop the opposition.
In the current campaign, he has won aerial duels at 2.1 per game, completed passes at a success rate of over 90%, made tackles and interceptions at 0.9 per game each. The Italian’s reading of the game is right up there and his leadership qualities helps the team in a big way. (whoscored)
At 24, Romagnoli has close to 10 years of top-level football left in him, chiefly because he is a centre-back. If Manchester United manage to sign him, his partnership with Lindelof could flourish for years to come.

That being said, the Red Devils must beat other potential suitors and offer a fantastic deal to the AC Milan captain and sign him ahead of the start of next season.
