Manchester United among clubs keen on Federico Bernardeschi

According to Italian publication Gazzetta Dello Sport (h/t Sun), Manchester United are on alert regarding Juventus midfielder Federico Bernardeschi.

The 26-year-old has found opportunities hard to come by under Maurizio Sarri. He has made 24 appearances, scoring one goal and one assist this season. Of these, just 12 appearances have come as starts. (h/t Transfermarkt)

Bernardeschi, who joined from Fiorentina in 2017, could soon be surplus to requirements in Turin. More so given the summer arrival of Dejan Kulusevski from Parma.

According to the report, the player is seeking a move to England to resurrect his career. Capable of playing in a variety of positions in midfield and attack, the Italian international will provide us with a number of options.

United, however, are not the only club interested. Premier League rivals Chelsea and Arsenal are also keeping tabs on Bernardeschi.

The Blues have been touted to make a move for the player in a swap deal involving Jorginho and Emerson Palmieri. It has also been suggested that the player could be made a part of Juventus’ bid for Paul Pogba.

A full international for Italy, Bernardeschi has won 24 caps for the Azzurri, scoring four goals.

His versatility will make him an excellent addition to our squad. It should give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer enough options to try a variety of tactics.

A player with pace, good ball control, and an eye for goal, his abilities have been underutilized by Juventus. A move to Old Trafford could very well change the fortunes of the player.
