Juventus to battle Prem trio to signing of Toronto starlet

Juventus are interested in Toronto FC starlet Jahkeele Marshall-Rutty, but Manchester City, United and Chelsea have already begun talks to sign the 16-year-old, according to reports.

Goal.com and Tuttosport report Juventus are interested in signing the right-winger who made his MLS debut in October 2020 playing 18 minutes against Philadelphia.

The Turin-based paper claims the Old Lady are facing competition from Europe’s best clubs who have also set their sights on the Canadian.

Manchester City, United, Bayern Munich and Chelsea have already begun contacts to sign Marshall in the summer, but no official negotiation has yet started.

Juventus could sign Marshall-Rutty and initially let him play in their U23 squad in Italy’s Serie C.

Several Juventus starlets, including Nicolò Fagioli and Radu Dragusin, came through the club’s academy and played in their second team before making their senior debut.
