Man Utd trio among transfers Juventus are ‘considering for next summer’

Juventus are reportedly keeping tabs on three Manchester United players ahead of next summer.

The Italian giants used the free transfer market to their advantage this summer by signing Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal after the expiration of his contract.

And it appears Juventus are already drawing up a shortlist of players who will be available for nothing in a year’s time, if they fail to sign a new contract.

Among them are David Silva and Christian Eriksen, who are both set to bid farewell to their current clubs at the end of the campaign.

Gazzetta Dello Sport also names three Manchester United players, who are said to be on Juve’s radar.

The three players listed in the report are David de Gea, Eric Bailly and Nemanja Matic.

De Gea was reportedly set to sign a new deal at Old Trafford after months of talks but is yet to put pen to paper.

Bailly is continuing his recovery from the serious knee injury he sustained against Tottenham in pre-season.

Matic, 31, meanwhile has seen himself fall down the pecking order this term.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has often preferred Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay in central midfield with Matic making his first outing of the campaign at Southampton last time out.

Discussing reports of a rift with Solskjaer, the Serb said: “I work as hard as I can, we respect the decision, it is mine to show him that he was wrong and to bring me back to where I belong.

“There is no problem. I told him I disagreed with him, but that he had to decide the team.

“The coach must opt for the team that will fight for the title, and if he does not win, he bears the responsibility.”
