Turkish Giants To Rival Man United For Juventus Striker

English big guns have some serious competition for strike ace.

Check in to Manchester United vs Real Sociedad

Turkish giants Fenerbahce are set to rival Premier League duo Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United in the race to sign Juventus forward Mirko Vucinic, talkSPORT reports.

Spurs and United both made enquiries for the Montenegrin hit man during the summer, but he ended up spurning their advances in order to stay with the Serie A champions.

However, the 30-year-old has now stated that he may need to leave the club following the summer arrivals of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente.

Due to the new summer signings he has featured just five times in Serie A this season, bagging one goal, and he is now once again being linked with a move away.

Sources in Turkey believe that giants Fenerbahce are prepping an approach for him, with a fee of around £10 thought to be enough to prize him out of Turin.

Though Juve aren’t looking to sell the striker, the Turks will be hoping that a big money bid will persuade the Italians to take a second listen.

Manager Antonio Conte is also thought to be interested in PSG ace Jeremy Menez, and it has been suggested that they may use the cash raised by selling Vucinic to fund that deal.
