Italian giants Juventus are lining up a €12 million summer swoop for Real Madrid full-back Fabio Coentrao, reports ABola.
Reports suggested that the Portuguese full-back was going to leave in the last transfer window, with a number of high profile clubs interested in his services.
The likes of Manchester United, AC Milan and Napoli had been linked with Coentrao's signature, however it now appears that Juventus are ready to make their move in the summer.
It remains to be seen as to whether Manchester United will step up their interest in the player in the next window, with David Moyes expecting to overhaul his side in the summer.
With Patrice Evra ageing, the Manchester United boss appears to be on the lookout for a long term replacement for the French international.
For now though, Moyes will be hoping to lift his players after a nightmare Champions League Round of 16 first leg defeat to Olympiacos last night. Manchester United were beaten 2-0 on the night and will now be hoping to overturn the deficit at Old Trafford in three weeks time.
