Man United could miss out on £80m pair due to Madrid plans

Manchester United could lose out on two of their long-running transfer targets, due to circumstances between Real Madrid and Juventus.

Reports in Italy, namely from publication La Gazzetta dello Sport, claim that Juve are interested in bringing Madrid trio Alvaro Morata, Fabio Coentrao and Angel di Maria to the Serie A.

Whilst not causing any real damage to David Moyes’ transfer hopes when left at that, it’s thought that the futures of those three players could impact upon the availability of Juve pair Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba. Here’s where United come into the fray.

The Red Devils have long been linked with moves for both Pogba and Vidal, but could lose out on the pair - valued at a combined fee of £80million (Pogba £45m & Vidal £35m) - as Madrid may not allow Morata, Coentrao and Di Maria to leave the club unless Juve consent to the sale of their two prized assets.

The Spanish giants are believed to be preparing to undergo a squad overhaul this summer, and history would dictate that Florentino Perez is more than willing to splash copious amounts of cash in order to mould the squad to his liking.

As for Juve’s plans, it remains to be seen whether or not they value Pogba and Vidal’s respective influences more than the additions of three summer targets.

Whatever the outcome, it doesn’t look good for United.
