After hiring a new head coach in Thiago Motta, struggling Seria A giants Juventus are now looking to retool their roster in an attempt to return back to contention. One of those moves could reportedly be bringing in Manchester United’s forward Jadon Sancho and offloading star Federico Chiesa.

According to a recent report by Italian media outlet Calciomercato, Juve has approached Man United to discuss a deal for Sancho. They believe the former England international would adjust well to Italy and significantly improve their team.

Man United is open to selling Sancho due to a strained relationship between him and head coach Erik ten Hag. Premier League powerhouse is reportedly asking around €50 million ($54 million) for the player.

Juve is willing to meet that price or at least come close to it but would need to sell some players to raise funds. Chiesa appears to be first on the exit door, with the Italian club making him available for a discount price of €25 million ($27 million) as he is entering the final year of his contract.

Sancho resurrected his career after spending the second part of the 2023-24 campaign on a loan with Borussia Dortmund. He finished the season with three goals and three assists in all competitions.

Chiesa, on the other hand, scored 10 goals and added three assists in 37 games in all competitions with Juve last season.
