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."

I

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.

Reward At Last For Years Of Careful Planning

W

e all know the British public don't have the patience to plan for 14 years. No chance. As soon as our young players don't win the world cup they get harrassed and abused to the point of mental breakdown. No, England likes to react to failure by sacking the manager and tearing up their best laid plans in favour of something shiny and new to keep the knee jerkers happy.
