Report: Juventus eye Man Utd trio as transfer targets for next summer

Juventus are reportedly keeping tabs on Manchester United players Eric Bailly, David De Gea and Nemanja Matic.

Gazzetta Dello Sport, as cited by the Mirror, claim that the trio are on the Serie A side’s wishlist for next summer’s transfer window.

De Gea is yet to sign a contract extension at Old Trafford, with his current deal running out at the end of the season. The Reds need to look to tie the Spaniard to a long-term deal to avoid losing him next summer.

Nemanja Matic, meanwhile, has yet to start for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this year and many fans would not be disappointed to see the back of the Serb.

It’s also interesting to see Eric Bailly also linked with the Italian giants, seen as though he has been plagued by injuries during his time at Old Trafford. He is currently recovering from a knee injury sustained in pre-season and will not return until at least after Christmas.

The report also claims Juve are keeping an eye on Christian Eriksen. The Denmark international’s contract runs out at the end of the season and United are also said to be interested in signing the midfielder.

The Sun report that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will continue to pursue Erisken despite him rejecting the club this summer, and are plotting a move in January.

However, if the Reds are going toe-to-toe with Juve in the deal, the attacking midfielder is far more likely to see Turin as a more desirable destination given the current state of each club.
