English Premier League heavyweights, Manchester City, Manchester United, and Chelsea are all in the race to sign Italy international, Lorenzo Pellegrini, for 21 million Pounds.
According to The Mirror, the trio are keeping tabs on the AS Roma star because of the low release clause attached to his current contract.
Pellegrini has put his name on several clubs’ transfer radar by impressing for the Serie A giants in 23 games.
The midfielder, who has been capped once by Italy’s national team, could spark yet another argument between Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte with the warring managers both showing interest.
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, who are leading the Premier League by 15 points, are also set to join the transfer battle while Roma are hoping to offer Pellegrini a new deal to stay at the Stadio Olimpico.
Roma academy graduate, Pellegrini, earned a name for himself at Sassuolo before his current club exercised a 9 million Pounds buy-back clause.
Monchi, Roma’s director of football, is not expecting to do much business in January and will instead look to promote from within.
“I do not think we’ll have to look for solutions outside, because I think the solutions are inside the team.”
