    Lorenzo Pellegrini agent says client not considering Manchester United move


    The agent of Roma midfielder and reported Manchester United target Lorenzo Pellegrini says his client is not considering a move away and is "only thinking about Roma".

    The 22-year-old Italy international has a £27m release clause in his contract and has reportedly attracted interest from United boss Jose Mourinho following a fruitful start to the season.

    However, agent Giampiero Pocetta dismissed speculation that Pellegrini is set to join the Red Devils, despite reports they were ready to make a move for him as soon as January.

    "I'm sorry that rumours have spread about financial aspects relating to him and his team-mates, that for Lorenzo have never been important," Pocetta told Corriere dello Sport. "He doesn't live for meetings, especially financial ones.

    "He's getting what he deserves on the pitch, and the rumours about the transfer market have never distracted him nor disturbed him.

    "Pellegrini is only thinking about improving with, and for, Roma.

    "These issues don't count for now, it's normal that Pellegrini is liked. Lorenzo is happy though, he's already chosen Roma once.

    "Then, when it's time, we'll sit down with Monchi [Roma sporting director] again."
