No link with Roker Park hero for Man Utd target Manolo Gabbiadini

It's official: there's no link between Manchester United target Manolo Gabbiadini and Sunderland hero Marco Gabbiadini.

News of United manager Sir Alex Ferguson's interest in the teenage Atalanta striker kicked the Italian press into action over a potential family link with Roker Park hero Marco Gabbiadini.

But unfortunately there's no family ties, with Gabbiadini senior now managing a hotel in York and doing commentary work for the BBC.

Ferguson is considering a move for Gabbiadini, who is being linked with a £9 million switch to United in January.
