Manchester United €290m-rated trio on Juventus radar as they eye major signing before deadline

Maurizio Sarri has already seen Juventus strengthen his squad this summer, however, reports recommend that they may be lining up one major signing before the deadline.

The Turin giants have considerably bolstered the team with the additions of Gianluigi Buffon, Matthijs de Ligt, Merih Demiral, Adrien Rabiot, Aaron Ramsey and others ahead of the new campaign.

Coupled with the best talent already at Sarri’s disposal, that should be enough to keep up their domestic dominance, while also launching a genuine bid to challenge for the Champions League.

However, it seems as if they’re still not done in the transfer market with a matter of weeks remaining before the deadline, as it’s suggested that they’re eyeing a marquee signing, albeit it’ll depend on potential outgoings to help balance the books and make space in the squad.

According to Tuttosport, Mauro Icardi, Federico Chiesa and Paul Pogba remain their ideal additions, but time will tell whether or not a deal may be agreed for any of the names in question.

It’s added in the report that Icardi and Chiesa are valued at around €70m, whereas Pogba would cost up to €150m.

With those price-tags in mind, it sets up an anxious wait to see whether or not agreements may be reached, with Pogba perhaps the most unrealistic of the three being touted.

Given the Frenchman’s importance to the Red Devils coupled with the fact that the deadline has already passed in England, therefore preventing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer from being able to sign a replacement until January, it’s difficult to ascertain United green-lighting an exit at this stage.

In turn, with Icardi being snubbed by inter and falling down the pecking order after Romelu Lukaku’s arrival, coupled with the potential appeal for Chiesa to pursue a move to Turin to compete for trophies and at the very best level, the pair is arguably the more realistic choices at this stage of the summer.

Nevertheless, as noted by The Guardian, Pogba refuses to remove all doubt over his future at Old Trafford, having now conceded a “question mark remains” after speculation was rife this summer that he may move on. He may well have to wait for an exit now though.
