Manchester United and Chelsea must wait for Italian starlet
The 19-year-old has reportedly been attracting the attention of the Premier League teams, as well as a number of other European sides, due to a string of impressive displays for the Serie A club.
However, reports suggest that the pair have been told by the Rossoblu (Red-Blues) to forget about making an approach until at least next summer.
Since making his senior debut in January, the wing-back’s performances have earned much praise from the Italian media, leading to speculation that he could be on the move.
Both United and Chelsea have reportedly sent scouts to the Stadio Luigi Ferraris to witness the youngster’s abilities first hand, which may tempt them to make a bid in the near future.
The club’s management are believed to be unwilling to let him leave during the winter transfer window as they hope to nurture his talents ahead of a big money move in the not too distant future.
The teenager is a product of the AC Milan academy, from which he ‘graduated’ before switching to Genoa.
Sampirisi is also an Italian U-20 international and is widely expected to advance to the senior set-up over the course of the coming seasons.
