Manchester United are set their sight on Merih Demiral as they prepare to make a €45m move for the Juventus centre-half, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, as cited by Sport Witness.
The Turkey international is widely viewed as a solid player in Turin and is expected to play a big role in years to come.
The defender only managed 15 Serie A appearances last term but has been a mainstay for his national side.
With Euro 2020 winner Giorgio Chiellini at the wrong end of his playing career, Merih could be considered his long-term successor.
However, if the Bianconeri receive a substantial bid for the star, they might reconsider his long-term future at the Allianz Stadium.
Manchester United might be the team to place an offer for the defender. A €45 million proposal is thought to be on the cards.
The Turkish star could be a great fit, and the price is adequate for the future Merih holds under his belt.
The Red Devils will still pursue hard the signature of Real Madrid Raphael Varane, and if Los Blancos indicate an acceptance of their offer, then the reported deal will go through.
On the other hand, landing a player like Demiral may not be a bad option for them after all.
