Juan Mata has recently emerged as a transfer target for Juventus, who are reportedly lining up a £18.3m transfer bid for the Manchester United midfielder, according to reports.

United boss Louis van Gaal is preparing for a summer overhaul of his squad and has been informed that he is required to sell players to allow him to buy fresh talent.

This has left clubs on red alert, including Juventus as they will need to replace outgoing superstar Paul Pogba, according to Tuttomercatoweb.

Mata is believed to be on the target list along with Chelsea’s Oscar and Borussia Dortmund’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The 26-year-old has been in good form this term, leaving Van Gaal with a difficult decision should the Serie A side come to them.

Manchester United are currently third in the Barclays Premier League having accumulated 62 points, one point behind Arsenal in second.
