Juventus to sign Manchester United star for free?

Juventus to sign Manchester United star for free?

Juventus are reportedly aiming to sign Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic on a Bosman agreement at the end of this season.

The Serbia international has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford this term and he is regarded as the back-up behind Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba.

Inter Milan and AC Milan have been credited with an interest over the past week but The Sun claims that they could face stiff competition from the Bianconeri.

The Serie A holders have followed the trend of signing high-profile players on free transfers and during the recent transfer window, both Adrien Rabiot and Aaron Ramsey were pursued on Bosman deals.

Matic, who earned his first league start of the season on Saturday, could have his contract extended beyond the summer through a 12-month option but reports indicate that United may ignore the clause.

The former Chelsea man featured for 70 minutes of the recent league clash against Southampton. His starting role was due to the fact that Paul Pogba was sidelined with an ankle injury.
