Manchester United may lose out on 20-year-old target

Published Add your comment

Manchester United could miss out on 20-year-old target Marco Verratti, as Fiorentina have expressed a desire to return for him.

The young Italian, who is being followed closely by both United and Real Madrid, has been pin-pointed by Fiorentina as a player of definite interest, and the Italian side are desperate for his services.

Verratti currently plays for French champions PSG, where he recently signed a new contract this summer, but is being lauded as being a sensational player for the future and has already been capped for the Italian national team.

It has been revealed that Fiorentina almost signed him in the summer, ahead of United, but he opted to extend his stay at PSG instead.

However it has done little to cull the interest of the Serie A outfit, who have expressed a desire to continue with their efforts at purchasing him.

"Verratti? He is a player who wants to play in Florence and our club like him a lot. If Fiorentina continue to grow, another dream will come true," Fiorentina's technical director, Eduardo Macia, stated.

It's unsure whether or not a bid will be tabled in January or whether Fiorentina will wait until next summer, but United could lose out on another player if they fail to act themselves.
