Juventus have set their sights on another emerging young talent from Manchester United, as they prepare a move for highly-rated midfielder Adnan Januzaj, according to twentyfour7football.com.
The 18-year-old earned rave reviews after a series of impressive performances in pre-season for the reigning Premier League champions, prompting suggestions this would be his breakthrough campaign in the first-team.
David Moyes used Januzaj as a second-half substitute in Manchester United's Community Shield victory over Wigan Athletic at Wembley in August, but the talented teenager has not featured since in 2013/14.
A season-long loan move has been touted for the Belgian, with a number of Championship sides - including Blackburn Rovers - understood to be keen to secure the Red Devils ace's services.
However, according to reports in Italy, Juventus will press ahead with an attempt to lure Januzaj away from Old Trafford permanently, just like they did with Paul Pogba last summer.
Pogba has gone on to establish himself as a mainstay in Antonio Conte's first-team, after growing frustrated at his lack of opportunities at Manchester United under Sir Alex Ferguson.
The fully-fledged France international was able to swap England for Italy with relative ease, due to the fact his contract was due to expire that summer, whereas Januzaj is tied down until 2015, so Juventus will have to negotiate with Manchester United directly, if they are to secure his services.
