Chelsea and Manchester United are both believed to be monitoring Roma ace Alessandro Florenzi, after the versatile player reportedly halted talks over a new contract with the Serie A side.


As reported by Italian outlet Corriere Dello Sport, via the Daily Mirror, both the Blues and the Red Devils are long-term admirers of the 26-year-old, and could look to capitalise on his apparent uncertainty over his future at Roma. Florenzi is naturally a midfielder, but has impressed in the wing-back position for I Giallorossi so far this season.

Chelsea may well look to Florenzi to provide more depth to their back-line, as their is little competition for current starter Victor Moses in the position. Meanwhile, United are arguably in need of some fresh blood in the wing-back positions, with Ashely Young and Antonio Valencia both now in their early 30s.


Florenzi - who is currently sidelined with an achilles injury - has spent all of career in Serie A to date, with the exception of a one-season loan spell with then-Serie B side Crotone. Given that Roma are his boyhood club, Florenzi may well struggle over the decision as to whether he should move on to a greater challenge.Me

Meanwhile, United have reportedly shelved plans to expand their 75k-seater stadium to reach a 100k capacity, after deciding to instead use the funds to finance a major summer spending spree. Manager José Mourinho is evidently still determined to bring more high-profile signings to the club, as he looks to win his first Premier League title with the Red Devils.
