Manchester United seem ready to release Alberto Massacci for a return to Serie A with Zdenek Zeman’s Roma.
The right-back had been poached from Empoli in 2009 as a 16-year-old, when he was still too young to be placed under a professional contract in Italy.
Now 18, he has struggled with injury during his time at United and it’s reported he will be released this summer.
Roma are thought to be making a proposal to Massacci, who are revamping under new Coach Zeman.
