Giorgio Scalvini, a center back for Atalanta, is reportedly close to being acquired by Manchester United in a deal of £44 million, as stated by Seb Ecrivain Foot, the editor of the French publication Les Bons Conceil Du Sports.
There is a significant amount of progress being made in the negotiations between both sides, and the Red Devils are prepared to activate the release clause of the 20-year-old player.
The Manchester United club has been keeping a close eye on Scalvini for some time now as they are looking to expand their alternatives at the center defense position.
Although he has established himself as a crucial player for both his club and his country, the Italian international player, who is 6 feet 4 inches tall, is a threat in both boxes and boasts enormous potential.
Additionally, Chelsea has expressed interest in acquiring the services of the young player, who is widely considered as one of the most talented young center backs in the world.
On the other hand, it would appear that Manchester United has surpassed them and other potential suitors to his signing. If a deal can be reached, it is possible that he will be going to Old Trafford within the next few weeks instead.
Additionally, Scalvini has caught the interest of AC Milan, Inter Milan, and Juventus; therefore, the Red Devils might consider themselves fortunate if they are able to get him before the Italian trio.
It is possible that Raphael Varane will be leaving the Theatre of Dreams at the conclusion of this season upon the expiration of his current contract. This is due to the fact that the club has chosen not to exercise the option that would have automatically extended his deal by an additional year.
It is even possible that the Frenchman may leave this month, and Jonny Evans will also be out of contract in June of 2024, which means that the Atlanta star might be brought in as an immediate and long-term potential replacement.
Scalvini has played 74 games for the Serie A club despite the fact that he is still a young player. His composure and his ability to play out from the back are attributes that have most likely attracted Erik ten Hag, the manager of the club.
