Manchester United are interested in signing the 19-year-old and submitted a bid of £21 million for him according to reports in Italy (via the Daily Star). However, FC Inter News claim that Atalanta have rejected their offer and are holding out for €35 million.

Schiar wrote on Twitter that Manchester United as well as Inter Milan have contacted Kulusevski’s agent and both clubs want to sign him in January.

The winger has been in decent form for Parma this season which has also resulted in him being called up to the Sweden national team. Provided he maintains his form, Kulusevski could feature in the Euros next summer.

Manchester United need some attacking reinforcements and the Swede could be a good option. However, they’ll have to beat the Inter and Juve in order to sign him.
