The Serie A club is expected to be active in the January transfer window.
Apparently, Juventus are in the middle of some excitingly new transfer gossip as their interest in pursuing Isco from Real Madrid has reignited in recent times whilst veteran forward Mario Mandzukic would look for a move away from the Old Lady to possibly FC Bayern Munich.
Firstly, Juventus have looked to capitalize on Isco’s rather unstable situation in the Los Blancos as he has failed to cement a spot for himself on a regular basis. The Spain international has endured a blip in his career and Juventus are ready to pounce on this opportunity to acquire his services and pair him along with his famed former teammate, Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Italian giants have previously been interested in Isco but Real Madrid have done well to thwart away any possible interest and thus managed to keep hold of the services of the attacking midfielder. But with the growing uncertainty regarding his future and Juventus’ own European ambitions, it seems only fair that they would look to sign someone of the creative acumen and brilliance of Isco.
On the other hand, as they prepare a move for Isco, Juventus might lose Mandzukic to Bayern Munich as the Croatian is possibly eyeing a move to the German side. The forward has represented them for two seasons from 2012-14 and as he continues to age like a fine wine, it is hard to think of a European giant that would think twice before hiring a player of his quality.
Mandzukic had been touted for a move to Manchester United actually and the rumour mills were insistent upon the Red Devils bringing him in as a relatively short-term replacement of Romelu Lukaku.
However, as the tables have turned in Bayern with the sacking of their manager Niko Kovac, one cannot possibly rule out them making a strong claim to buy the 33-year-old soon.
Mandzukic led the forward line and with much aplomb for Juventus until the commencement of the last season when Cristiano Ronaldo joined them and hence the situation overturned completely. The former was shoved too much of a secondary role and there have been formidable rumours about him moving to seek a better footballing future elsewhere. Bayern Munich might turn out to be the answer of the same.
