Red Devils are reportedly considering a transfer swoop for Monaco striker Pietro Pellegri. Italy international has struggled at current club Monaco, barely playing due to injury problems, but it looks Man United are long-time admirers of his.

Pietro looks a slightly surprise target at this moment in time, however, and might not be worth the risk for Man United, even if he has previously looked like a talented teenager with immense potential.

Di Marzio state, however, that Red Devils could look to exploit their good relationship with Monaco in order to get this deal done.

Man United boss is looking to build a long-term plan for success at the club with the additions of young talent in the likes of Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James while Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes are also yet to reach their peak.

Red Devils, like many other clubs, are sure to feel the economic impact of the covid19 pandemic at the moment, so that might mean they need to alter their transfer strategy.

The Italian centre-forward could be one of the cheaper options out there, and might well end up being a good investment if he can put his fitness issues behind him and get back to his best.
