Juventus asked Real Madrid about the availability of Manchester United and Tottenham transfer target Fabio Coentrao after their Champions League tie last night, according to Portuguese newspaper A Bola.

The report claims Juve chiefs enquired about the possibility of bringing the left-back - who has been strongly linked with a move to Spurs and Manchester United - to the Juventus Stadium during the winter window.

He's fallen out of favour at the Bernabeu - he's made just four appearances under Carlo Ancelotti in La Liga this term and Marcelo has often been preferred.

United are thought to have come closest during the summer window to signing the Portugal international, with a deadline day bid reportedly breaking down at the eleventh hour.

Old Trafford boss David Moyes has been linked with a renewed attempt to sign the full-back in January, although his reported £100,000-a-week wages at the Bernabeu could be a problem.

But United and Spurs could face stiff competition from Juventus, with reports in the Italian media claiming that boss Antonio Conte is a big fan of the Portuguese star.

Monaco were also linked with the defender at one stage although their interest is thought to have cooled, while Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas was reported today as lining up a January swoop of his own.
