Samp or Celtic for Manninger

Two clubs are chasing Juventus reserve goalkeeper Alexander Manninger, according to his agent.

"Sampdoria are an option, while there is also the possibility that he could join Celtic," stated Franco Granello.

Manninger is currently the third-choice in Turin behind Italian international Gianluigi Buffon and Marco Storari.

Juve are expected to sell either Storari or Manninger this summer.

The Austrian, 34, has been at Juve since his 2008 switch from Siena. He's also played for Arsenal and Fiorentina in his career.

Sampdoria, who were relegated from the top flight last term, need a new No 1 after Gianluca Curci returned to Roma this summer.
