Sassuolo sports chief Nereo Bonato isn't surprised Manchester United are watching their striker Domenico Berardi.

The 18 year-old has come under the gaze of United this month.

Bonato told TMW: "Football is globalizing, we have seen this with PSG and Marco Verratti. They have their own scouts that monitor all leagues: the Red Devils are attentive to the best talent, and it is not surprising, perhaps, they are interested in Berardi. Certainly it would be better to keep him in Italy ...

"His contract expires in 2015."
