According to Daily Express, Manchester United are interested in signing Roma defender Gianluca Mancini.

Premier League rivals Chelsea are also reportedly interested in the 24 year old defender.

Mancini has impressed in the Serie A this season, featuring in 23 of Roma’s 26 league matches this term and keeping seven clean sheets in the process.

The report claims Roma do not want to sell the promising centre-half as they view him as a key player in the club’s future but could be tempted if an offer of £27million is received.

Mancini was on the scoresheet as Roma beat Shakhtar Donetsk 3-0 in the Europa League on Thursday evening.
