Roma look set to cash in on their highly-rated young defender Riccardo Calafiori.

The 18-year-old defender has impressed for youth clubs at both club and international level, at the Italian side have realised that they could make a hefty profit on the talent in order to strengthen elsewhere.

Each of Juventus, Inter Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United have been linked with a swoop for the teenager by Italian media, with his current side announcing huge losses earlier this year.

Corriere dello Sport have now added that Riccardo could be used to help his current club raise funds after a difficult period without UEFA Champions League football.

The move could see the Red Devils put pressure on both Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams in spite of their recent good form, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer interested in completing summer deals.

They sit three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea in the PL table ahead of the return to action in June and will be hoping to see Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes’s partnership come good in the remaining nine fixtures.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are lining up an audacious bid for Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling, according to a report.

The Englishman has been one of City’s star performers over the past few years, scoring and assisting a combined 78 goals in the PL alone since the start of 2017-18.

Sterling has previously admitted that he’d like to play in Spain one day, but Raheem has offered no other indication that he is seeking a transfer away from City this summer.

However, The Independent suggests that the 25-year-old star’s stance may change if the club’s European ban is upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport in June.
