Manchester United have reportedly switched focus to Juventus defender Cristian Romero in their search for a new centre-back.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Romero is being seriously considered by United after impressing on loan with Atalanta BC.
Romero was among the best defenders in Serie A last season, helping his side to seven clean sheets en route to a third-placed finish.
Atalanta have the option to purchase the Argentina international outright for £21.5m, which they now seem certain to do.
However, it is claimed that United will then test La Dea's resolve by tabling a £39m offer for the 23-year-old.
The Red Devils finished as runners-up in the Premier League last time out and are supposedly eyeing up four new players this summer.
