Agent Branchini: Barella can go to Man Utd

Italian agent Giovanni Branchini can see Cagliari whiz Nicolo Barella moving to Manchester United.

Branchini has likened the Italy international to United legend Paul Scholes.

He told Tuttosport: "He is very similar to Paul Scholes.

"He is an outstanding player and I really believe he can go to Manchester United this summer."

Just yesterday, Chelsea assistant manager Gianfranco Zola revealed: "We were so close (to signing Barella in January).

“He's strong and Sarri has always liked him, but then things fell through."
