Jose Mourinho 'tracking Lorenzo Pellegrini'

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho reportedly sends scouts to watch young Roma midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly keeping tabs on young Roma midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini.

The 21-year-old returned to the capital outfit this summer following a two-year spell with fellow Serie A side Sassuolo, which saw him score nine goals in 47 appearances.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Mourinho sent scouts to watch Pellegrini in action during Roma's 3-0 victory over Hellas Verona at the weekend, having enquired about his availability earlier in the week.

In June Roma exerted their buy-back clause over Pellegrini, bringing him back to the Stadio Olimpico and handing him a five-year deal with weekly wages of £35,000.

Having featured for the Italy team at Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, Pellegrini earned his first senior cap for his country earlier this year.
