Manchester United are said to be weighing up a £20million move for Fiorentina’s Federico Bernardeschi as they look to get the majority of their transfer business done early, according to The Sun.
The Italian U21 international has been in outstanding form for La Viola this season, bagging an impressive five goals in 22 appearances from the wing.
He caught the eye of a number of onlookers last week when he scored for Paolo Sousa’s side in their Europa Cup clash with Tottenham Hotspur.
And it now seems that his performances have prompted United to take a closer look at his abilities.
However, they aren’t the only ones interested in his signature, and may have to go up against the likes of European giants Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain, who are also said to be keen on snapping him up.
Fiorentina, understandably, aren’t keen on losing him though, and have valued him in the region of £20million.
