Man Utd learn Romero price, Tielemans ‘expected’ to leave Leicester and Pereira eyes Spain

Manchester United face a make-or-break summer in their efforts to close the Premier League gap on local rivals Manchester City, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer under pressure to improve again in 2021/22.

The Red Devils’ pursuit of Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho continues to take up the bulk of transfer headlines, but that’s far from the only business United are looking to complete.

Atalanta ace Cristian Romero is one name who could improve their options in defence, but United have learnt the Serie A star will be a costly addition if he does arrive.

Another potential recruit is Leicester talisman Youri Tielemans, who is “ready for a new challenge,” according to one Belgian insider.

As for the departures list, United midfielder Andreas Pereira has continued his campaign for an Old Trafford exit, covered in the latest round-up of Daily Star Sport transfer rumours.

However, Tuttosport has reported La Dea will demand €60million (£51.5m) if they’re to sell the Argentina international, who helped the Bergamo outfit finish third in Serie A this past season.

Romero is midway through a two-season loan at Atalanta from Juventus, but Gian Piero Gasperini’s side are expected to make his move permanent for €20m (including a €2m fee for the initial loan)
