Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti, who is a Juventus transfer target, is now also wanted by Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho
Verratti’s agent, Donato Di Campli, has said the Italian international could be forced out of the Parc de Princes if he continued to receive criticism and Old Trafford is a new alternative to Turin. (Mundo Deportivo).
He said: “Stuttgart are my favourite team and I am proud they are the only German jersey I’ve worn in my life. In the future I will return to lend a hand, perhaps in a different role, but first I will play for a while. (La Repubblica)
In the meantime, Juventus will focus their attentions on tying young striker Moise Kean to a new deal. The 17-year-old has made just three appearances for Max Allegri’s side this season but is highly regarded at the Juventus Stadium and will, reportedly, be offered a new long-term deal to remain with the reigning champions.

Juventus coach Allegri will also look to bolster his midfield this summer with the a double swoop for Lyon’s Corentin Tolisso – who has scored six times from midfield this season – and Anderlecht’s Youri Tielemans.
Belgian international Tielemans has four years remaining on his contract with the Belgian champions and would reportedly cost up to £25m. Tolisso has already been linked with Arsenal and Chelsea. (Tuttosport)
Bayern Munich forward Kingsley Coman, who is on loan from Juventus, is attracting attention from the Premier League and is a Manchester City and Chelsea transfer target.
The 20-year-old, who has scored twice in five Bundesliga starts during an injury-plagued season, can be purchased by Carlo Ancelotti’s side for €21m this summer but there will be a three-way tussle for the Frenchman’s services. Chelsea will reportedly offer €60m while City’s bid is believed to be closer to €50m. (Bild)
