Manchester United bid for Alessio Romagnoli rejected by AC Milan

Corriere dello Sport claim the deal was rejected out of hand by Milan’s top brass who have come under pressure to generate funds after a huge outlay on players last summer.

Romagnoli was attracting interest from Chelsea when Antonio Conte arrived at Stamford Bridge two years ago.

But the Blues failed to get their man and brought David Luiz back to London instead.

The defender signed a new four-year contract at the San Siro last month, but that has not stopped Jose Mourinho making a tilt at the talented defender.
