Tonali to Juventus?

Serie A holders Juventus are reportedly leading Manchester United in the race to sign Sandro Tonali from Brescia during the summer transfer window.

The teenager played an influential role in his club's promotion from Serie B last term and he has continued to impress this season with one goal and four assists in the Italian top-flight.

United have been linked with the Italian midfielder for somewhile but Calciomercato claims that the Bianconeri are in the front seat to land his services in the summer.

The same outlet claims that the Bianconeri are planning advanced talks with Brescia ahead of the summer transfer window and they are lining up an offer worth £42m to seal the deal for the 19-year-old.

Tonali, whose style of play has been likened to Italian legend Andrea Pirlo, has around 16 months remaining on his current Brescia deal. The club, however, have the option of extending his stay for another 12 months.

United are preparing to part ways with Paul Pogba at the end of the season. They are alleged to have reduced the midfielder's price tag from £180m to £150m inorder to agree his sale to one of his suitors.
