Chelsea has emerged as the most likely destination for Manchester United target Milos Krasic, it has been claimed.

The Juventus winger is seemingly set to leave Turin in January, having fallen foul of Antonio Conte, who was appointed as Bianconeri boss in May.

According to Metro, £12 million-rated Krasic 'edges closer' to a Chelsea move after hinting he may quit Juve when the transfer window opens.

It was initially reported that Andre Villas-Boas would offer Juve a swap deal for the 27-year-old, with Chelsea centre-back Alex - who is admired by Conte - included in the deal.

However, reports in the Italian press have also suggested Sir Alex Ferguson is keen on Krasic, and has already approached Juve over a potential loan deal for the Russia international.

It would, though, come as surprise if Ferguson did decide 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.
