Juventus have gotten themselves some good deals in recent times, landing players who just finalized their contracts. This summer we saw that with Adrien Rabiot and Aaron Ramsey, and they plan to do the same next summer, going after three Manchester United players once their contracts expire.

​The Italian giants are eyeing up David de Gea, Eric Bailly, and Nemanja Matic as potential free transfers next summer, with all three in the final year of their contracts with the Red Devils. The Old Lady is also reportedly interested in Premier League heavyweights David Silva and Christian Eriksen, who look likely to depart Manchester City and Tottenham, respectively.

According to Gazzetta Dello Sport, as relayed by the ​Mirror, Juventus could take these players away from Old Trafford and United could lose all of them for nothing.

Even though it was rumored that he was set to sign a new contract with Manchester, De Gea is yet to commit to the Red Devils. Once January comes, he’ll be free to negotiate with foreign clubs.

Recent rumors suggest the English giants are already looking for replacements for the Spanish goalkeeper, who was linked with Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid at some point.

The second player of this mini list is Eric Bailly, who landed from Villarreal in 2016, with huge expectations. However, injuries have prevented him from becoming a big figure within the Red Devils’ ranks. They signed Harry Maguire this summer, and that only means Bailly’s future will be out of Manchester.

Lastly, we have Nemanja Matic, a player who was great for the Red Devils while Jose Mourinho was the boss, but has lost his position in the starting XI with the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Knowing his style of play, the Serbian would be a great addition for Juventus and Italian football.

He hasn’t seen a lot of action this season, so he’s highly likely to depart from Manchester and, as for right now, join Juventus next summer.
