Italian champions Juventus are readying a January bid for Manchester United full-back Matteo Darmian, according to Manchester Everning News.
The Bianconeri are preparing for life after Stephan Lichtsteiner, who is expected to leave in search of first team football in January.
And Juventus appear to have already found him a replacement as they are stepping up their interest in Matteo Darmian.
The Italy international has lost his place in the starting line-up at Manchester United following the arrival of Jose Mourinho and there will be no obstacles to him leaving in the winter.
Darmian is still held in high regard in Italy and chances are he would be interested in a move to Juventus, especially since Dani Alves has entered the late stage of his career.
According to MEN, Manchester United plan to replace Darmian with Fabinho, a Brazilian full-back who is currently on the books of Monaco and can operate as a central midfielder as well.
