Premier League giants Manchester United are reportedly eyeing a move for Juventus defender Merih Demiral.

This is according to the latest reports emanating from the media in the European nation of Turkey.

Manchester United have been linked with a lot of centre backs this summer and the Turkish defender is the latest player to be linked with a move to the Theatre of Dreams.

Merih Demiral has already made a move this summer after he joined Italian Serie A champions Juventus from fellow top flight side Sassuolo.

Juventus paid €18m to sign him earlier this month but he’s likely to struggle for first team opportunities especially after the Italian champions secured the transfer of Matthijs De Ligt from Dutch Eredivisie champions Ajax Amsterdam.

De Ligt sealed a big money move from Ajax to Juventus earlier this week.

Juventus will pay €75m for his transfer in addition to €10.5m in add-ons and bonuses.

The Italians will pay a total of €85.5m, making him the third most expensive player in the history of the club behind the duo of Gonzalo Higuain and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Matthijs De Ligt is the second most expensive defender in the history of world football behind Liverpool star Virgil Van Dijk.
