Juventus are reportedly keeping tabs on the possibility of Nemanja Vidic being available next summer on a free transfer.
Set to turn 32 later this month, the centre-back’s current deal at Manchester United will expire in June 2014.
Whilst United manager David Moyes has recently stated his intention for the club to negotiate a new deal this autumn with the club captain, Tuttosport suggest that the player may be reluctant.
It is a situation that reportedly has Juventus as one of a number of clubs monitoring and that the Bianconeri may have an advantage.
It is seen that should Vidic get into February next year without having renewed his contract, director general Beppe Marotta is optimistic of closing a deal with his agent, Silvano Martina.
Martina is seen to have a good relationship with Juve, due to his representation of goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.
