Manchester United are reportedly interested in adaptable Juventus defender Martin Caceres according to Italian source CalcioMercato.

Sir Alex Ferguson will no doubt be considering making defensive changes this summer having seen his side struggle at the back all season. Indeed the Scot will be all too aware just how crucial his strike-force has been in overcoming goals conceded to help the club challenge for a treble of triumphs.

Martin Caceres is an adaptable defender who is most commonly used as a centre-back but is also able to ply his trade at both right and left-back.

Caceres moved to Juventus on a permanent basis last summer having impressed during a loan spell in which he helped Antonio Conte’s side to clinch the Serie A title.

Caceres is by no means a first team regular, making just ten Serie A starts out of a possible 25, and would certainly be tempted by a move to Old Trafford but presumably only if he felt it likely to bring with it a more regular taste of the action.

Martin Caceres is an experienced campaigner who spent five seasons in La Liga prior to his permanent Italian switch.

Given Rio Ferdinand’s age, and the fact that the 34 year old is yet to be handed a new contract, and Nemanja Vidic’s continued injury concerns, a move for a player like Caceres may be a wise one to consider.
