Manchester United and Jose Mourinho are expected to be busy yet again this summer transfer window with the manager planning to add a few players to his squad to help achieve his goal next season.

Mourinho has been looking at a number of players recently but if recent reports are to be believed, the former Real Madrid manager has a few things to worry about in the summer.

It is not often that players are desperate to leave the Old Trafford, but one David de Gea seems certain to quit England at the end of the season.

The Spanish international, who is among the best in his position in Europe, has been the best player for Manchester United for a couple of seasons now but he has been extensively linked with an exit recently.

Spanish giants Real Madrid are ready to meet his release clause to get him to the Bernabeu in the summer but reports today suggest that Manchester United will have to fend off interests from elsewhere as well.

English news source Sun claims that Italian champions Juventus are now ready to make a move for De Gea if they fails to sign AC Milan’s Gianluigi Donnarumma.

The Turin-based outfit, who are well on their way to yet another Italian league title, have Gianluigi Buffon as their first choice shot-stopper for more than a decade now.

However, the legendary goalkeeper has entered his final few years at the club and is not expected to extend his contract which expires in 2018.

And it is now understood that they are eyeing a £42.5m move for the Manchester United shot-stopper as a replacement for the Italian. But according to the same report, Juventus want Gianluigi Donnarumma as Buffon’s replacement, but if the deal doesn’t go through, they’ll try their hands on David de Gea.

But they are now desperate for a star name in this position and are ready to go head to head with Real Madrid for his signature.

It is also revealed that Manchester United will snatch Donnarumma away if Juventus manage to land De Gea in a year’s time.

However, the Italian giants are interested in his signature in 2018 and will only be able to lure him if he stays at the club till then.

If de Gea manufactures a move away, Juventus will have no chance of adding him to their squad in the future.

Do you think David de Gea could be a hit in Italy?
