Silvio Pagliari told BBC Sport: "I know there's some interest from Manchester United. I'm very proud of it, as he is.
"But United have had no contact with me or with Sampdoria. He'd be keen on playing in England, for sure.
"We have many things to think of, as many big clubs in Italy too are interest in a player like Fabio.
"The first club that shows us they want to sign Fabio Quagliarella, we are ready to play with them.
"Coming to England would hold no fears for Fabio as far as representing his country, absolutely not."
