Mirko Vucinic is “very close to Manchester United,” confirmed his agent after a meeting. “We will know more in the next few days.”
The Roma striker has requested a transfer following a row with the fans and had been heavily linked with Juventus.
However, United have leapt into pole position for the €20m rated Montenegrin international.
“We are very close to Manchester United,” agent Alessandro Lucci told LaSignoraInGiallorosso.
“The meeting was yesterday and there were no formal offers, but the English club made it clear they very much appreciate Mirko.
“We will know more in the next few days.”
