Italian champions Juventus have been dealt a big injury blow following the news that midfielder Emre Can is set to miss the all-important Champions League meeting with Premier League giants Manchester United.
The Red Devils host the Old Lady in a Champions League Matchday 3 clash billed for Old Trafford on Tuesday night and former Liverpool midfielder Emre Can is almost certain to miss the game with thyroid problem.
The 24-year-old could even need surgery to cure the problem permanently.
Since his free transfer move to Italy from Premier League outfit Liverpool in the summer, the German international midfield general has become an important player for the 1996 Champions League winner.
The former Bayer Leverkusen star has made 10 appearances for the Old Lady in all competitions and he’s a big doubt for tonight’s game against a rejuvenated Manchester United side.
The Red Devils have turned their season around with recent results against Newcastle United and top four rivals Chelsea in the Premier League.
Manchester United came from two goals down to score three second half goals and secure a 3-2 win over the Magpies just before the international break before coming from a goal down to play 2-2 draw with Chelsea in their first game after the international break.
