Manchester United have supposedly been informed by Atalanta BC that it will take on proposal of more than €60m (£52m) to sign Cristian Romero this mid year.
The Red Devils had as far as anyone knows been confident of convincing the Serie A club to take advantage of the middle back for a bid of around £39m.
Romero featured borrowed with Atalanta last season and La Dea have the alternative to buy the Argentina international altogether for £21.5m.

According to Tuttosport, Atalanta intend to trigger that right-to-buy clause and keep Romero at the Gewiss Stadium unless a big bid is tabled.
It is not believed that United have yet made an initial approach for the 23-year-old, who earned his first senior international cap in last week’s 1-1 draw with Chile.
