Italian giants Juventus are suddenly a club in crisis. BBC Sport report the entire board of the Italian club have resigned.

This follows the launch of an investigation into transfers. The extent of this is unclear, but in football, where there is crisis, there is also opportunity for others.

Here is a look at three Juventus players Manchester United should target, and no, Paul Pogba is not among them.

Nor is Adrien Rabiot or Angel di Maria…

Dusan Vlahovic

Juventus splashed out on Dusan Vlahovic last January and if they now are pressed into selling their stars, the Serbian striker is their top asset.

Still only 22, Vlahovic has almost 60 Serie A goals to his name for Fiorentina and Juventus. He is a powerhouse of a forward who could lead the line incredibly well for Erik ten Hag’s side.

The Telegraph has recently reported that United are still paying attention to Vlahovic’s situation, even before this, in the event of Juventus failing to qualify for the Champions League next season.

Manuel Locatelli

The star of Euro 2020, Juventus soon snapped Locatelli up from Sassuolo. He could be the ideal alternative for Erik ten Hag to sign, having missed out on Frenkie de Jong this past summer.

Locatelli, 24, is a well rounded midfielder who is an excellent passer, who could slot into United’s side seamlessly alongside Casemiro.

Juventus would hate to part ways with the Italian talent – but their financial situation could provide an opening. Calcio Mercato reported that United made an enquiry after Locatelli in the summer.

Kaio Jorge

If Juventus resist selling one of their top stars, they may have to settle for selling a top young talent instead. Kaio Jorge is worth taking a gamble on.

The 20-year-old has scored six goals in 10 youth games for Brazil, and impressed as a teenager for Santos, where he scored 17 goals, including six in the Copa Libertadores.

He has only made a handful of appearances for Juventus – but his talent is intriguing enough that United could look to lure him to Old Trafford for a bargain price.
