Juventus to battle Man United for £16m-rated midfielder

Manchester United face a stern fight to land Benfica star Enzo Perez this summer, as Juventus are desperate to take him to Turin, according to reports.

TuttoSport in Italy claims that the Serie A champions are so concentrated on capturing the signature of the £16million-rated midfielder that they may sell Paul Pogba or Arturo Vidal in order to generate both the funds and the room to accommodate him. This comes after speculation yesterday insinuated that United were in the advanced stages of considering whether or not to make an official move for the Argentinian.

Perez is believed to have a buy-out clause which values him at €30million, but rumours infer that his club would most likely be open to offers in the region of just over half that amount. At 28 he isn’t one for the future, but his impressive performances in Portugal haven’t got unnoticed around Europe, and it would certainly be a coup if United were to complete his purchase as part of their summer revamp.

Of course Juventus will be fierce opposition. Having recently secured yet another Italian league title - and their subsequent participation in the Champions League next season - they hold a definitive advantage over the currently manager-less Red Devils. The weekly salary Perez could command may be a problem, but if either Pogba or Vidal were to be sold on then they would most certainly have plenty of cash to play with.
