Euro Paper Talk: Chelsea, Man Utd target wants Juve return

Date published: Thursday 27th April 2017 12:18

Manchester United have offered a huge salary to snap up a Napoli star, while a Chelsea and United target wants to rejoin Juventus this summer, according to the European media.


Manchester United have reportedly offered Napoli star Dries Mertens 4.5million euros a year to move to the Old Trafford this summer

The Belgium international forward is said to be reluctant to sign a new deal with the Serie A side, as he turns 30 in May and wants to go somewhere with a better chance of winning silverware.

La Gazzetta dello Sport claims that the player’s wife also want to leave Naples and that United are ready to swoop for the hitman.

Old Trafford officials are already rumoured to have met with representatives of Mertens over a possible switch to the Premier League so a summer deal could very much be on the cards.


Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata is said to be more than willing to make return to his former club Juventus.

Morata has struggled to dislodge Karim Benzema in the central striking position at Real and has reportedly been dreaming over a move back to Serie A.

Tuttosport claims that Chelsea and Manchester United are more willing to pay the asking price of around 60million euros for the player then Juve.

The Italian giants could, however, have an ace up their sleeve in the form of prolific frontman Paulo Dybala.

The Argentina hitman recently signed a new contract with the club until 2022 but that hasn’t stopped speculation over his future and Real may be tempted by a player exchange if Morata really expresses an interest to leave.
