Massimiliano Allegri confirmed in a press conference that the player had decided to leave the club, saying that he didn’t plan to play for Juventus again, and a move to Manchester City had seemed the most likely. That move to join Pep Guardiola, though, has since fallen through as the Premier League champions walked away from negotiations.
Now, Manchester United are closing in on completing a sensational move. Sky Sports are reporting that Manchester United’s talks with the player and Juventus are at an advanced stage, also stating that an agreement with Jorge Mendes is close.
Sky Sport Italia have reported the bid to be worth €25 million.
