Man Utd tracking Serie A starlet

Manchester United are tracking promising Roma midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini according to reports in Italy.

Corriere dello Sport claim that Jose Mourinho is interested in signing the young Italian after a string of positive performances for Roma and he even sent scouts to watch the midfielder during the 3-0 win over Verona at the weekend.

Pellegrini has come through the ranks at Roma and has spent the last two years on loan at Sassuolo where he made 53 appearances, scoring 11 goals.

He has now returned to Roma and has been handed the number 7 shirt, and has also been rewarded with a new five year deal which will keep him at the club until 2022.

However, the Italian club are thought to rate the 21-year-old at £25million.
