Dzeko in, Vucinic out?

Juventus could be prepared to sell Mirko Vucinic to Manchester United in order to bring in Edin Dzeko.

The Bianconeri have made no secret of their intention to sign a so-called ‘top player’ in attack for next season, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s wages at PSG are proving an obstacle.

Instead, Il Sussidiario claims they are turning their attention towards Manchester City striker Dzeko.

It is certainly not the first time that the Bosnian has been linked with Juve, as he was extremely close to agreeing a move to Turin when he opted for Manchester.

His physicality is a drawing point for Juve, as tall centre-forwards are somewhat lacking in Serie A football.

There are also reports that Juventus will raise the funds for this purchase by selling Vucinic, who repeatedly missed scoring opportunities this season.

According to newspaper Libero, Manchester United are more than happy to spend big for the 29-year-old Montenegro international who arrived from Roma in 2011 for €15m.

Sir Alex Ferguson is known to be an admirer of Vucinic.
