EXCLUSIVE: Sassuolo target Steaua winger Dennis Man

Sassuolo have a serious interest in Steaua Bucharest winger Dennis Man after a proposed move to Norwich collapsed, Transfer Nexus understands.

The 21-year-old has alerted a host of European clubs, particularly in Italy, following his performances for Steaua.

English club Norwich were in talks over a potential deal but pulled out when FCSB asked for €15m.

Norwich had offered £5m (€5.5m) and the valuations between the clubs were just too far apart.

Instead, Man could be off to Italy with a source describing interest from Sassuolo as ‘very serious’.

Sassuolo have had a great season in Serie A and are sitting pretty in eighth position with four games to go.

The Neroverdi want to keep hold of their stars, such as in-demand winger Jeremie Boga, and give head coach Roberto De Zerbi some new signings.

Romania international Man has the profile they are looking for, making him an ideal addition if the price is right.

Sassuolo not alone

Sassuolo could face local competition for Man, with Atalanta and Sampdoria also interested in his talents.

Other clubs could also yet step forward for Man, one of Romania’s best talents of his generation.

English giants Manchester United had a €15m bid turned down for Man in 2019.

FCSB had wanted a Liga 1 record fee of €30m at the time for their dynamic winger.

However, with the Coronavirus pandemic affecting the market they are now willing to negotiate at closer to €15m.

Man scored eight goals and delivered five assists this season for Steaua and is under contract with the 26-time champions until 2022.
