Manchester United have joined Chelsea in the race to sign 16-year-old Italian sensation Pietro Pellegri.

However, sources close to Genoa have told us that chairman Enrico Preziosi will only consider a sale if they receive around £40million.

Pellegri shot to prominence when he made his debut at 15 — and became the youngest goal scorer in Serie A history last season.

Before, earlier in this campaign, netting twice in a 3-2 defeat to Lazio.

United, meanwhile, will be a striker light in the summer, and are keeping an eye on the Genoa starlet’s development this season.

Having already lost Wayne Rooney, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is unlikely to stay on for a further term and will depart at the of the campaign.

So the Red Devils could move then.
