Man United preparing £24m offer to land box-to-box midfielder

TalkSport state that Manchester United are preparing a £24m bid to snatch Roma star Alessandro Florenzi from the Italian outfit, with the intention of beating Chelsea to the highly-rated midfielder.

25-year-old Florenzi has been influential for Roma’s Serie A campaign, which promised so little but has since seen them curtail and fall to third-place in the standings, which would give them a route to the Champions League via a play-off.

As such, a number of quality stars from the Rome outfit could be lured away from the club this summer and United have sent scouts to watch Florenzi recently.

The versatile player would add a lot to United’s squad, although he wouldn’t provide the same sort of impact Neymar or Gareth Bale. The difference here though is the fact that Florenzi may want to play at Old Trafford.

United fans, how many signings do you need this summer? Let us know in the comments below!
