Manchester United have made contact with Sassuolo owner Emilia Squinzi to declare their interest in signing Chelsea target Domenico Berardi in a €23million deal, according to Italian publication TMW, reports Sport Witness.

The 19-year-old striker has attracted admiring glances from the Premier League after an impressive first half to the Serie 'A' season, during which time he has scored 11 goals.

Red Devils boss David Moyes is believed to be keen to lure the talented teenager to Old Trafford, and is willing to pay a significant transfer fee to make the move happen.

However, one possible sticking point for Manchester United is the fact that Berardi is co-owned by Juventus, and is due to return to the Italian giants at the end of the season.

The Turin club would also be due a fee for the player, meaning the overall price for Berardi's services could rise well above €23million.

Add to that, the fact that Jose Mourinho is also a great admirer of Berardi, and will be looking to strengthen his forward ranks at Stamford Bridge in the summer, and a move to Manchester United starts to look increasingly unlikely.

In addition to Chelsea, Werder Bremen are also understood to be monitoring the striker's situation, but TMW says that they wouldn't have the financial resources to compete with either of Berardi's English suitors.
