No offers considered before June, Man United target's agent warns

Juventus 2

The agent of Juventus-owned striking star Domenico Berardi has stressed that there's no possibility of a January sale.

Domenico Berardi is believed to be on Manchester United and Werder Bremen's radar, but he won't be leaving Juventus in January.

The 19-year-old is regarded by many as the heir to Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero's crown and he has been on sensational form while at Sassuolo, who co-own him.

Berardi has netted 11 times this season for minnows Sassuolo and is joint second top scorer in Serie A behind Fiorentina's Giuseppe Rossi with 14.

Juventus are expected to buy Sassuolo out this summer to own 100 percent of the talented marksman, but there have been suggestions that a major foreign club could try and snap him up.

Yesterday it was suggested in the Italian press that Manchester United could be willing to pay £19m for Berardi and it was possible they could force an immediate sale, but the player's agent has other ideas.

"Nothing concrete has happened yet and even if an offer did arrive it wouldn't be considered before June," Simone Seghedoni told TuttoJuve.com.

"If one thing is certain then it is this: Domenico will stay at Sassuolo until the end of the season.

"The player doesn't want to leave and the club don't want to let him go. As I have said before, Domenico has taken up Sassuolo's cause and wants to keep them in Serie A. The market is to be discussed in June."
