Italian champions Juventus are weighing up moves for Real Madrid starlet Mateo Kovacic and Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera, Tuttosport can reveal.
The Bianconeri appear to have given up hope of recruiting Spanish midfielder Isco, with his teammate now emerging as their top target.
Mateo Kovacic has struggled for playing time at Santiago Bernabeu, and Juventus officials hope he would be keen on returning to Italy.
The Croatian footballer already has plenty of Serie A experience, having made 80 league appearances for Inter Milan, scoring 5 goals.
At the same time, Juventus appear ready to rekindle their interest in Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera, another creative footballer who has been warming the bench of late.
The Spaniard’s prospects of playing regular first team football at Old Trafford have suffered a major blow with the arrival of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba, which is definitely good news for the Bianconeri, seeing that the midfielder should be available at a reasonable price.
