Sampdoria: Serie A side have signed Birkir Bjarnason and Andrea Petagna

Bjarnason, an Iceland international midfielder, has dual ownership and the 25-year-old only joined Pescara permanently earlier this summer, having spent last season on loan at the now Serie B outfit.

He featured 23 times during his spell at the Stadio Adriatico, scoring twice, but was unable to prevent a 20th-place finish which saw his side suffer relegation from the Italian top flight.

Striker Petagna, 18, has arrived on a season-long loan deal with a view to Sampdoria securing joint ownership of him next summer.

The Italy Under 19 international has only made two first-team appearances for Milan, the club where he progressed through the youth system before making his debut last term.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
