Manchester United target Sime Vrsaljko, who is presently in Croatia Camp in Russia, is being tracked by numerous European clubs after his impressive performance against Nigeria in their world cup opener.
The Atletico Madrid defender was lively throughout the night as he prevented the African country from getting a goal in the match which ended 2-0 in their favour.
Having seen his no-nonsense attributes for the European country, Serie A giants Juventus have reportedly shown their interest to compete with the Red Devils for his signature.
The Old Lady are reportedly seeking to bolster their defensive abilities ahead of the upcoming season and they are hoping they could beat the Old Trafford outfits to his signature.
The 26-year-old is a longtime target for José Mourinho but the Portuguese manager could miss out on the player’s signature considering the desperation on the part of the part of Juventus.
It was reported last month via The Mirror that the Premier League giants made a £35m bid for his services during the previous transfer period in January but they were denied the chance to capture him by Atletico, who failed to sanction his move out of the Spanish Capital.
However, the latest report Via Mundo Deportivo suggests that Juventus are ready to leapfrog United in the race for his signature before the end of this year FIFA World Cup currently ongoing in Russia.
