This season, the Italian international has netted five while providing an assist against Istanbul Basaksehir in 16 appearances so far.

According to Rome-based newspaper Il Messaggero, Manchester United and PSG both are interested in signing Zaniolo and are willing to offer €60 million for him.

The 20-year-old can play as an attacking midfielder as well as a right-winger although most of his goals have come playing in the latter position. Both Manchester United and PSG shall have landed a big fish if they manage to sign him. However, Zaniolo will most likely find more game time at Old Trafford as the Parisians already have a solid attack.

Manchester United need some bolstering upfront and the 20-year-old could be pretty useful for them.
