Manchester United inquire about Ronaldo’s teammate Dejan Kulusevski
Transfer News: Manchester United inquires about Dejan Kulusevski
According to the transfer news from Express, Manchester United asked Juventus about Dejan Kulusevski. It comes amid reports that Manchester United are preparing a move for Cristiano Ronaldo. However, Juventus are very keen on keeping the youngster.
The 20-year-old went through Swedish club IF Brommapojkarna before joining Atalanta in 2016. He impressed on loan at Parma in 2019/20, catching United’s attention for the first time.
However, Juventus won the race to clinch it last summer with a worthwhile deal. £ 31.5m. It looks like he’s still adjusting sideways as Juventus go through one of their toughest seasons.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer set to revive United interest and keep an eye on the youngster’s progress in Turin. Capable of playing in a variety of attacking roles, the 20-year-old will give United more options.
Meanwhile, Juventus are unwilling to sell the player. Still young, his best is yet to come and their position is understandable.
Andrea Pirlo has spoken of his sub-par start to the season.
“He reacts like a champion. It is natural when arriving at Juventus at 20 that there is more pressure and that every pass feels important. He’s proving to be a champion in his mentality even faster than he proves on the pitch, so I’m expecting big things.
Although Kulusevski is an exciting prospect, he is far from a ready proposition. United have a number of young players like Amad Diallo and Facundo Pellistri. We could focus on recruiting those who can play from the start.
