written by Darren Smith
Club: Sassuolo (Serie B, Italy)
Clubs to show interest: Man Utd, Roma and Juventus
Born in 1994 Berardi endured a tough induction into the world of Football. Released from Cosenza’ academy aged just 13, Berardi was offered a second chance when spotted during a kick about. After impressing at academy level for Sassuolo Berardi was promoted to the first team, where he helped the small club gain promotion to Serie A during 2012/13.
This potential FM14 wonderkid has been closely linked with Manchester United during November of 2012. Juventus are the most recent club to show an interest, amid reports the Italian champions were considering a bid in July 2013. Lets just hope that doesn’t come through for us FM 2014 fans, or this kids value will rocket!
