Torino winger Alessio Cerci has handed Manchester United, Juventus and any other potential summer suitors by turning down another contract offer from the Serie A side, according to Tuttosport.
Cerci is out of contract at the end of next season and in a strong position to force through a summer move to a leading European side, after scoring 11 goals in Serie A this season to attract recognition from across the continent.
United, Juventus and AC Milan have all been linked with a cut-price deal for the Italian international, something Torino are desperate to avoid by tieing the star down to a longer contract.
Tuttosport reported this morning that the 26-year-old has turned down improved terms from Torino chairman Urbano Cairo and is yet to be convinced that his future lies with Giampiero Ventura's side, despite a strong campaign.
Torino will be forced to sell their most prized asset during the close season if Cerci continues his current contract stance, which means Man United or another European giant could sign a dynamic, forward thinking wide man for a fraction of his true worth if they move quickly.
United are gearing up for a major squad overhaul when the season finishes, while AC Milan and Juve are Serie A giants actively looking to sign the best players in Italy in search of very different long-term priorities.
