Manchester United Book Scout In To Watch Chelsea Target, Mull Summer Swoop


Manchester United are set to send a scout to watch Arsenal and Chelsea target Nicolo Barella in action at the weekend, as they mull a potential swoop for the Italian midfielder.

The 22-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from Cagliari since the winter transfer window and is tipped to leave in the summer.

Almost all the giants of Italian football have their eyes on him, with Barella believed to be keen on continuing in Italy next season.

He has also attracted interest from the Premier League as Arsenal and Chelsea have been keeping close tabs on him over the past few months.


But there has been more interest from England as, according to Italian daily Gazzetta dello Sport, Barella will be watched on Sunday by a Manchester United scout when Cagliari take on Napoli.

With Ander Herrera leaving and question marks over Paul Pogba’s future, Manchester United are in the market for midfielders in the summer.

Barella has emerged as a target and Manchester United are interested in taking him to Old Trafford at the end of the season.


The Manchester United scout will run the rule over the Italian on Sunday as the midfielder looks to impress against one of the top teams in Serie A.

He is also likely to monitor Manchester United’s top defensive target Kalidou Koulibaly during the game.
