Manchester United & Juventus tussle over Italy international

Published Add your comment

Manchester United will have to fight off Serie A champions Juventus if they are to land defender target Andrea Ranocchia.

According to talkSPORT, the Old Trafford club have been tracking the Inter Milan star for some time after Sir Alex Ferguson had concerns over long-term options in the centre of defence.

However, Ferguson’s retirement has got Juventus believing they can take advantage of the changes going on with David Moyes taking charge and nip in front of Manchester United for Ranocchia.

The report claims Manchester United could well still be interested in the 25-year-old, even though they have lost ground to the Bianconeri.

Ranocchia moved to Inter in 2011 and has impressed many with his dominant performances, despite a disappointing season for the San Siro club.

Inter could only finish ninth in Serie A last season and the 6ft 5in centre-back may well be tempted by the Champions League football on offer at either Juventus or Manchester United.
