Reports - Juventus to raid Man United, Real Madrid and PSG

Juventus 2

Tuttosport indicates that Juventus are aiming to pick up Nemanja Vidic, Xabi Alonso and Jeremy Menez on free transfers at the end of the season.

Juventus are keen to strengthen their squad for next season with a hat-trick of top players whose current contracts expire at the end of the season, according to Tuttosport.

The Turin-based newspaper claims that the successes of free signings Andrea Pirlo, Paul Pogba and Fernando Llorente have encouraged Juve sporting director Beppe Marotta to look for more out of contract players at the end of the season.

The three that are said to be on Marotta's wish-list are Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic, Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso and Paris Saint-Germain forward Jeremy Menez, who formerly played in Serie A for Roma.

There have been reports that Manchester United are keen to renew Vidic's contract but nothing has been agreed yet, leading to suggestions that he may seek a fresh start away from the Premier League.

Alonso has been linked to Chelsea after Real Madrid appeared to be bringing in his replacements in Isco and Asier Illarramendi, but Juve are also believed to be following his situation with interest.

Menez has found himself something of a peripheral figure for PSG this term and won't settle for that for long. 

Marotta is known to be a fan of the 26-year-old since his time at Roma and is reportedly preparing a swoop in the summer.
