Manchester United are currently in red-hot form, making it a mere regulation for them to win matches in the Premier League as well as the Champions League. They have won all their matches so far this season in all competitions except one, which saw them play out a hard-fought 2-2 draw against Stoke City.
The Red Devils are looking very confident in their approach and are looking like a potential contender to clinch the Premier League trophy this season. They have some of the top class players in Europe at their disposal and are willing to make their current campaign a memorable one with the help of these superstars.
That, however, has not by any means made the gaffer Jose Mourinho complacent about his team strength as he is constantly looking for areas to improve on and play well in the long term. He might also be ready to splash out the cash once again in the next transfer window and add more new players to the squad.
As per reports, the Manchester United manager has fixed his eyes on the Italian youngster Lorenzo Pellegrini, who is currently plying his trade for the Serie A outfit AS Roma. The 21-year-old has attracted the eyes of a number of clubs from all over Europe including the Red Devils and the reports claim that the club had scouts present to watch the player.
Pellegrini started his tenure with the Giallorosso this season and has shown his mettle in the midfield for them already. The young enforcer made his way through the ranks into the first team and has carved a niche for himself as an integral part of the side.
The 21-year-old spent the last two seasons on loan at Serie A side Sassuolo, gaining ample first team exposure, which has proved to be very beneficial for him and has helped him immensely to sharpen his skills. He has dished out some memorable performances in the heart of midfield and has become the centre of attention for a number of clubs from all over Europe, willing to sign the player in the January transfer window.
Mourinho has turned into a connoisseur of youth since his arrival at Manchester United, which is quite contrary to his style that he deployed at the clubs he managed so far. He has utilised the old saying ‘horses for courses’ to bring the best out of the young players so far this season and the Italian midfield ace might not be an exception. However, the Red Devils will have a hard time with AS Roma to avail his services for the future.
