Manchester United have reportedly made an initial move to sign Juventus winger Milos Krasic in January.
The Serbia international has struggled to make an impact under new Juve bos Antonio Conte and his future in Turin has been the subject of frequent speculation in recent weeks.
Arsenal and Chelsea have both been linked with respective moves for Krasic in the New Year, while AC Milan are also alleged to have shown an interest.
But, according to Corriere dello Sport, Sir Alex Ferguson have already approached Juve over a proposed six-month loan deal for the 26-year-old.
Should United formalise their supposed interest, Krasic would not be cup-tied for the Champions League, with the Bianconeri not featuring in the competition this season.
However, it would come as surprise if Ferguson did decided to bring Krasic to Old Trafford, due to a stable of talented wingers already at his disposal.
The United boss currently has Ryan Giggs, Luis Nani, Ashley Young, Park Ji-sung and Antonio Valencia to chose from when it comes to wide midfield positions.
