Juventus favourites to sign Manchester United attacker?

Juan Mata news

Mata on Juventus radar

Juventus have reportedly earmarked Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata as a potential target for this summer's transfer window.

The Spaniard has enjoyed an impressive five-year spell with the Red Devils but he could leave the club on a free when his contract expires in the summer.

This has resulted in interest from the likes of Barcelona and Atletico Madrid in recent weeks, but according to Sport, the Bianconeri could make an offer of their own for the 30-year-old.

The same publication suggests that Cristiano Ronaldo has given the green light for the move while the Bianconeri are prepared to lure Mata with a lucrative three-year deal.

Mata has netted five times for the Red Devils across all competitions this term. He recently scored the opening goal against former employers Chelsea but that was not sufficient as the club managed only a 1-1 draw.

United are currently three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea with two games to play and they need a huge favour from both the Blues and Arsenal, if they are to make the top four before the season concludes.
