  • Manchester United keen on signing Roma defender Dean Huijsen
  • Huijsen has the potential to become one of the best players in the world
  • Roma legend De Rossi praises Huijsen's maturity and skills

Premier League giants Manchester United are reportedly interested in acquiring Roma defender Dean Huijsen. The Serie A starlet is believed to have the potential to develop into one of the best players globally, according to former captainturnedcoach Daniele de Rossi.

De Rossi was left awestruck as he witnessed Huisjen's impressive performance, scoring a stunning goal against Frosinone last weekend. Standing at an imposing height of 6ft5ins, this Juventus loanee is not just limited to his role as a centrehalf but also exhibits remarkable attacking abilities with marauding runs into midfield.

The news about Manchester United's interest comes as no surprise since they have been linked with several promising young defensive talents across Europe recently. Among those mentioned were Goncalo Inacio, Giorgio Scalvini, Jarrad Branthwaite, Antonio Silva, Marc Guehi, and Lille teenager Leny Yoro (Gazzetta Dello Sport).

De Rossi believes that Huijsen has the potential not only to become one of the best centrehalves but also one of the greatest players in football. He praised his maturity and intelligence on ESPN, though he suggested that there is room for improvement regarding defensive tactics.

Huijsen showcases great composure on the field despite being just 18 years old, demonstrating exceptional skills with ball control. However, De Rossi suggests that learning some 'Italian tricks' in defense would elevate his game even further and potentially make him one of the world's finest talents (ESPN).

Jose Mourinho is a big fan

It was during Jose Mourinho's tenure as Roma boss when signing Huijsen became a priority. The former Manchester United manager shares similar sentiments about Huisjen's potential and considers him capable of becoming a modernday 'great'. With Juventus valuing him at around £25 million, securing this promising talent was among Mourinho’s final acts before leaving Rome (Gazzetta Dello Sport).
