Man United want to sign “magnificent” £34m Euro 2024 star ahead of Liverpool

Manchester United is one of the latest club to eye a move to sign a Euro 2024 star who looks destined for a big move after the tournament this summer.

With Erik ten Hag set to take charge of a crucial third season at Old Trafford despite initial doubts over his job security, Manchester United have turned their attention to handing the Dutchman some much-needed reinforcements.

A summer deal, as things stand, could quickly look like a bargain too, with Bologna reportedly demanding just €40m (£34m) to sell their central defender in the coming months.

Still just 22 years old, there’s plenty more to come from Calafiori, who is already stealing the headlines for all the right reasons in both Serie A and at Euro 2024 in Germany.

“Magnificent” Calafiori could be the future of Man Utd defence

The 22-year-old is proving that he can perform on the big stage at Euro 2024 and is bound to only get better, making him a player United should do everything to avoid missing out on this summer.
