The 22-year-old joined the Serie A side in January 2012 and has gone on to make 47 appearances, scoring once.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
