Juve considering Ruben Dias

Reports from Portugal suggest Juventus are close to signing Benfica’s Ruben Dias, but Italian media claim he is not their first choice.

According to Tuttosport, the Bianconeri like the Portugal international, but have other names ahead of him on their list for defensive reinforcements.

The 21-year-old has a release clause of €60m and has attracted the interest of the likes of Atletico Madrid, Liverpool, and Manchester United.

Dias has had a busy season for the Portuguese giants, contributing four goals in 53 appearances between cup and league competitions, while he has also won nine caps for his country.
