Juventus continue to look towards Manchester United to sign an attacker, but their plans appear to be changing.

Monday’s edition of Corriere Torino reports Juve are backing away from the idea of signing Mason Greenwood. Manchester United asking for €50m is presented as one of the issues, which is a bit of a red herring because everyone knows they’d accept less.

More importantly, the local newspaper says ‘la piazza torinese’ is against Greenwood’s arrival due to the serious controversies in his personal life.

When they say ‘la piazza torinese’, they mean something similar to local opinion, so the local Juventus fanbase.

Reading between the lines, it’s easy to assume Juventus, their fans and local media weren’t truly aware of the magnitude of what happened with Greenwood. As that ignorance has been cured, the interest has waned.

Therefore, according to Corriere Torino, the Serie A side are looking towards Jadon Sancho.

Hurray for Manchester United, right? Well, no, not really, because whilst it’s stated Sancho would cost €50m, Juventus don’t plan to pay that.

Their sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli wants to try for a loan with Manchester United continuing to pay a chunk of his salary.

That is obviously far from ideal.
