No €35m United bid for Lamela

The representative of Erik Lamela has rubbished speculation that Manchester United have made a move for the Roma man.

The transfer rumour mill has suggested that the Premiership giants are ready to offer €35m for the Argentine talent.

“No, there is no truth in that at all,” Pablo Sabbag told Gazzetta Giallorossa. “For the moment, there is no offer from Manchester United.

“Obviously I have a relationship with them, but we have never discussed this particular topic. It’s the same with Roma, a club I have a continuous relationship with.

“It’s just too soon to be talking about the transfer market.”

The 20-year-old Lamela, signed from River Plate for €17m in the summer of 2011, has scored 11 goals in 21 League games this term.
