That’s according to French publication Les Bons Conceil Du Sports, who claim United are ready to trigger the highly-rated 20-year-old’s £44million release clause.
Scalvini is said to be the subject of rival interest from AC Milan, Juventus, Inter Milan and Real Madrid. Chelsea have also been touted among the Italy international’s suitors.
