Euro Paper Talk: Man Utd to sign one, reject another as Juve set price for duo

Date published: Wednesday 21st November 2018 12:00

Juventus have contacted Manchester United to inform them of their asking price for two stars they’re willing to sell, while Liverpool have been given hope they could still Adrien Rabiot in January, according to Wednesday’s European papers.



Manchester United have been cleared by Juventus to sign two of their stars when the January transfer window opens, after the Serie A side named their price for the duo.

According to il Bianconero, Juve are ready to cash in on both Mario Mandzukic and Alex Sandro when the transfer window reopens – but have warned suitors they won’t come cheap, having set a fees of €30m and €50m, respectively.

And according to Tuttosport, Juventus have directly contacted United to offer them first refusal over the duo, who have both – over recent months – been linked with moves to Old Trafford.

The paper, however, believes that while Mourinho will be keen to sign striker Mandzukic for the quoted €30m, they will reject the chance to sign Sandro, with Mourinho’s interest in the full-back put on the backburner due to Luke Shaw’s revival and the fact he is prioritising other areas of his side.

However, the Brazilian is unlikely to be short of offers with Chelsea and PSG both reported to be tracking the left wing-back.
