Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport understands that Juventus are planning an ambitious bid for Real Madrid winger Angel Di Maria.
The Bianconeri appear to be on course to their third straight Serie A title, but the club officials are keen to make that extra step in Europe after Antonio Conte’s team were eliminated in Champions League group stages this season.
As a result, they plan to add a couple of marquee signings ahead of the 2014/2015 season, with Angel Di Maria one of the first names on their hit-list.
The Argentine is reportedly unhappy with the lack of playing time at Santuago Bernabeu and is likely to be available for sale at the end of the season.
Juventus believe an offer in the region of €30 million would be required to wrap up the deal for the 25-year-old midfielder.
With Real Madrid already five points behind Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, los Blancos are priced at 11/4 for the league trophy.
