Cristian Romero TEAMtalk

Genoa defender Cristian Romero has called on Manchester United to snap him up this summer, despite claims that he may already be joining Juventus.

The 20-year-old only moved to Genoa from Begrano last summer but is already eyeing a move to one of Europe’s top sides after an impressive season so far.

There have been reports that a deal for Juve to sign Romero has already been agreed, although the player has opened the door to a switch to Old Trafford.

He told Corriere dello Sport: “I’ve always wanted to become a professional football player and I’ve made it happen.

“Now I dream of playing in the Champions League for one of the four most important clubs in the world: Juventus, Real Madrid, Barcelona or Manchester United.

“After that, I want to be part of the Argentine national team, even if I know it’s difficult because there’s Otamendi, one of the best in the world.

“Have Juve already secured me? I don’t know. I don’t deal with the market and my first thought is Genoa.

“There’s still so many matches remaining and I want to keep playing like I am. After that, I’ll talk to the directors and my agent.”

United, meanwhile, have held talks with Portuguese giants Benfica over a possible deal for a £100m-rated star. Read the full story here…
