​Italian ​Serie A champions ​Juventus are planning an ultimate raid on ​Manchester United during the course of the January as well as next ​summer's transfer window by keeping an eye on three first team players that they would like to bring to Turin, that too for free.


The Italian giants used the free transfer market to their advantage this summer by ​signing Aaron Ramsey from ​Arsenal after the expiration of his contract. 


While Juventus are said to be keeping an eye on David Silva and Christian Eriksen from ​Manchester City and ​Tottenham Hotspur respectively, who turn free agents next summer, they are also said to be targeting David de Gea, Eric Bailly and Nemanja Matic as per a report from Gazzetta Dello Sport, as quoted by ​Mirror.


De Gea was reportedly set to sign a new deal at Old Trafford after months of negotiations but is yet to put pen to paper. Bailly is continuing his recovery from the serious knee injury he sustained against Tottenham in pre-season and Matic has seen himself fall down the pecking order under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.




Solskjaer has preferred Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba in central midfield in the season up till now with Matic making his first appearance of the campaign in United's draw against Southampton.


There were reports of a rift between Solskjaer and Matic and the Serb addressed those reports by stating, "I work as hard as I can, we respect the decision, it is mine to show him that he was wrong and to bring me back to where I belong."


He concluded, "There is no problem. I told him I disagreed with him, but that he had to decide the team. The coach must opt for the team that will fight for the title, and if he does not win, he bears the responsibility.”
