Juventus looking at United for bargains

Various outlets both in England and Italy claim Juventus are keeping their eyes open for three Manchester United players who are set to become free agents soon: David de Gea, Eric Bailly and Nemanja Matic. The Serie A champions pulled off a similar move this past transfer window when they signed Aaron Ramsey after his contract with Arsenal had expired.

In July De Gea was said to be set to sign a six-year contract with United to “reward him for his loyalty to the club”, but it never materialised. Bailly, a bit of a liability considering his injuries, particularly the knee injuries he has sustained, signed a four-year contract in 2016 which is due to expire next summer. After the arrival of Harry Maguire from Leicester for £80 million, he is likely to be deemed surplus to requirements even when fully fit. Matic, who has failed to secure his spot under the new management, signed a three-deal contract with an option for another year in 2017.
