Sassuolo claim their 18-year-old hitman Domenico Berardi is “followed with great attention” by Manchester United, Juventus and other top clubs.
The youngster scored twice and provided two assists in two games for the Serie B side so far this season.
“The interest from Manchester United? The player is followed with great attention by many clubs, including the Red Devils and also Juventus,” director general Nereo Bonato told Sky Sports.
“But there are other Italian and foreign sides who have observed him in recent games.
“For the moment there has been no concrete contact, so we're thinking about the present and how to develop Berardi in the best way.”
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, other sides ready to pounce for Berardi include Roma and Lazio.
“We are open to all options. We'll see how things are going and how the situation develops. Domenico deserves attention; he has great qualities and he's showing it.
“He has a contract with us until 2015 and if some big club should come forward we will see what is best for everyone.”
