Man United leading race to sign €25m-rated Italy international

Davide Frattesi is open to joining Man United if a chance arrives. Erik ten Hag is in the market for a new midfielder and could search for alternatives to previous target Frenkie de Jong. Italy international is rising in stature within football, and his performances for Sassuolo are already attracting plenty of attention.

Frattesi originally played in the holding role, but in recent times has switched to a more advanced role with the Serie A side. Davide has 4 goals from central midfield this campaign, and Sassuolo are aware his future may lie elsewhere. They are reportedly open to a sale and could entertain offers as it comes.

The Red Devils are one of the sides keen on the 23-year-old midfielder, as the Dutch manager lines up a move in the next window or summer. In any case, Erik ten Hag is already shortlisting new midfielders as an alternative to de Jong. The Italian could become that target and is also reportedly available for half the price of the Dutchman.

They must accelerate the process to approach Sassuolo with an offer knowing that other PL suitors are chasing the Italian midfielder. Frattesi has a big decision to make despite having a deal until 2026. He will have options from within Italy to move, but the lure of the PL could prove effective. For now, Man United could become an option if they show seriousness about their interest.
