Juventus ‘compiling dossier’ on Man United star ahead of transfer window – report
Juventus are keen on a move to try and sign Marcus Rashford in the January transfer window, say reports
Juventus are compiling a dossier on Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford ahead of the January transfer window, according to reports in the British media.
The Times is reporting that the Serie A side are keeping tabs on the England youngster following his impressive form for both club and country recently.
The same story says that the Italian giants are keen admirers of the 21-year-old and they have placed his name on their list of potential targets as the January transfer window draws ever nearer.
According to the same article, Juventus officials have been making “discreet checks” on the player’s background and character to see whether he would be a good fit for the club.
Rashford, who is under contract at Manchester United until 2020, has scored two goals and made one assist in nine Premier League appearances.
However, his first team opportunities under Jose Mourinho have been somewhat restricted this season and he has only started five of the Red Devils’ 12 Premier League games.
The Red Devils do have the option to extend the striker’s deal by a further year, meaning that they have the potential to keep him until 2021.
Rashford will be hoping to start for Manchester United when the Red Devils host Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon in the Premier League.
