Paper Talk: Manchester United to pinch exciting £50m Chelsea midfield target

Manchester United could spend £50million on a Chelsea target, Liverpool have signed a teenager and Spurs are set to splash £20million on a midfielder, all in Saturday’s papers.

 

UNITED TO GRAB BARELLA

Manchester United are primed to pinch a Chelsea target this month, according to a report in Italy.

Gazzetta dello Sport via Goal claim that United are ready to pay £50million for Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella in January.

Barella, 21, has been linked a s replacement for Cesc Fabregas at Stamford Bridge after the midfielder left for Monaco earlier this month.

The online version of the account does not mention United, however the paper edition is though to detail United’s interest ahead of Inter Milan.

Luciano Spalletti is understood to be very keen on the Italy international who is a renowned “box-to-box” midfielder, but Inter are unlikely to be able to match the player’s £50m valuation.
