Man Utd were denied Vlahovic transfer

Manchester United failed with an attempt to sign Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic in the last transfer window.

The Red Devils landed a new striker in Wout Weghorst on loan last month, but it seems they were also keen on Vlahovic.

The hierarchy were ready to sign him on a permanent basis for €100m, but the transfer was blocked at the final hurdle.

While the fee was agreed with the Bianconeri, his representative blocked the proposed winter transfer at the 11th hour.

According to AS, Vlahovic's agent did not want the striker to leave in January as there could be more high-profile interest.

Darko Ristic is aware that Real Madrid are looking for a new marksman and believes he can persuade them to sign Vlahovic.

The 22-year-old has had an injury-plagued campaign with Juventus, but has still impressed with 13 goal contributions so far.

The Serbian is likely to push for a move away from Juventus, who look on course to miss out on Champions League football.

The Turin giants were recently docked 15 points for financial fraud and they are now 12 points behind the league's top four.
