Manchester United may have found a long term solution as the Red Devils are believed to be interested in Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella.
The Italian international has been on the headlines for his link up with Chelsea but Maurizio Sarri is unlikely to get his service. Chelsea have refused to meet Cagliari’s demand of £45m and their interest in the player have cooled off.
United are yet to lodge a formal bid for the youngster but he could be the perfect player to lead the Red Devils midfield. Interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has mostly preferred Nemanja Matic, Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba in a midfield three to drive the team from the middle of the park.
Matic has been the defensive shield providing an extra layer of protection just before the backline while Herrera has been doing all the dirty work. These two has managed to put Pogba in the control of the creative work and the French midfielder is having a wonderful season so far.
Barella could be the midfield engine United have been searching for long. His playmaking skills from the deep would help the likes of Paul Pogba as the French midfielder has been at the forefront of all United strategy.
