The report also claims Serie A giants AC Milan are also showing some interest in the 22-year-old Spaniard, who was linked with the Blades over the summer.
“Sheffield United were interested and still are. They confirmed to me from the club that nothing has changed yet and that they need a player with his characteristics,” said the journalist.
Blades fans flocked to Twitter to share their thoughts on the claims to emerge from the Italian outlet regarding the previously linked Spanish ace.
What did these Sheffield United fans have to say?
“Sounds like we’ve got a chance”
“Collado and Diallo in January “
“2 similar sized clubs, will be a difficult decision”
“We’re a bigger club so”
“Fingers crossed it happens”
“Feeding McBurnie or Ibra.. ik who I’m picking and its not that Swedish bloke”
As a result of the transfer speculation surrounding the winger, Barcelona did not register him for any of their squads, meaning he is unable to play until January’s registration period.
Although the Blades are expected to face competition from one of Europe’s powerhouses, it seems these fans are optimistic about their chances of signing the 22-year-old.
