Juan Fernando Quintero: Has been linked with Manchester United

The young playmaker has been a revelation at the Serie A club, catching the eye of a host of top European sides with his impressive displays this season.

United are thought to be keen on the 19-year-old but, while he says he would consider approaches from any big club, Quintero admits he would prefer to stay in Italy and is keen on a move to Inter.

"United? No, I like Inter," he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"I prefer the Nerazzurri because they have a lot of South Americans at the club. And I'm happy in Italy.

"Saying that, it is clear that I would not turn down other strong teams because I'm ambitious: Manchester, Milan, Juventus...

"I'll decide with my family and with my agent."

Quintero has played down reports there is a €10million (£8.3m) price tag on his head should he be sold by Pescara.

"I don't know if I am worth that," he added. "I still need to learn and work hard. I need to improve as a player."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
