Quagliarella "very proud" of Man Utd interest

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.

"We can talk about Inter Milan, Juventus, Man Utd, Chelsea - this is no problem for the player as they are all massive clubs.

"I don't know when Fabio will decide his future but the transfer window is open until 31 August and we have no preference at the moment.

"The first club that shows us they want to sign Fabio Quagliarella, we are ready to play with them.

"The fee will be between £10-13.5m, that will be enough for Sampdoria and Udinese, who own half of his registration."

Pagliari added: "As a child he used to watch Premier League games on television and if we can speak with the likes of Man Utd, Chelsea or Arsenal he would like that very much.

"Coming to England would hold no fears for Fabio as far as representing his country, absolutely not."
