Atalanta want €60m for Man United’s reported target Cristian Romero

News out of Italy says Atalanta has named the price they're willing to lose Romero.

According to the Italian outlet, Calciomercato, as reported by Goal, Atalanta is willing to sell the 23-year-old central defender.

"Tottenham and Barcelona have also been linked to Argentine defender Atalanta will not let Cristian Romero leave for less than €60 million (£52m/$71m) this summer, according to Calciomercato," Goal wrote.

"The Bergamo side has an option to buy the center-back from Juventus for €16m (£14m/$19m) and are looking to trigger that clause this summer.

"They could then opt to sell him on, with Manchester United reportedly hoping to get him, though Tottenham and Barcelona have also been linked.

"Atalanta will not let him go cheap, however, and so United have not reached out to them lately," the outlet concluded.

Meanwhile, Romero is not part of Argentina's 2021 COPA America cup final against mighty rivals Brazil this weekend.
