Manchester United favourites to complete deal for £39m German midfielder

Manchester United are reportedly regarded as the favourites to acquire the signature of Emre Can, who is expected to leave Juventus at the turn of the calendar year.

The Germany international has struggled for playing time under the guidance of Maurizio Sarri this term and he has been restricted to just one league start.

As a result, he has already voiced his frustration through the media and The Express reports that the Bianconeri could be willing to sanction his sale during the winter transfer window.

Can currently has a £39m release clause on his existing deal but reports indicate that he could be available on the cheap with the Bianconeri prepared to accept as little as £15m.

United have not made a single midfield signing despite the departures of Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera this year and they are braced for the potential exit of Nemanja Matic in January.

The Serbian’s departure will certainly trigger the need for at least one midfield addition and Can perfectly fits the bill with his vast Premier League experience from his time at Liverpool.
