Federico Bernardeschi could be headed for greatness and Manchester United may regret not managing to snap him up before he was big.
United attempted to lure Bernardeschi in 2011 when he caught the eye of Sir Alex Ferguson, but, unlike Federico Macheda, Giuseppe Rossi and Davide Petrucci, they couldn't convince the winger to move to Old Trafford.
Federico's father Alberto stated that his son wanted to do the right thing by Fiorentina and was happy where he was and that gamble seems to paying off.
Now 20, Bernardeschi is wowing fans at the start of the current campaign and has been compared to great Italian Roberto Baggio.
Like Gigi Buffon, Bernardeschi hails from Carrara and has been mentored by the Azzurri goalkeeper, who may be preparing him for the demands of being a top player.
Fiorentina need some attacking flair with Giuseppe Rossi injured again and Bernardeschi may get a chance to impress in Serie A, having done well in Serie B on loan to Crotone.
If Bernardeschi continues to remind people of Baggio, Manchester United may be chasing him again, but this time they'll have to pay serious money.
