Juventus are reportedly ready to open talks with Manchester United No 1 David De Gea in January should his contract situation remain as it is
The Spanish shot-stopper has entered the final year of his contract but has been reluctant to commit his future to the Red Devils in spite of the club’s attempts to tie him down with an improved deal.
Although United offered De Gea £350,000-a-week wages, the extension seems unreachable at the moment, as the 28-year-old continues to stall for an unknown reason.

According to the Daily Express, Juventus will look to take advantage of the goalkeeper’s hesitation to lure him to Serie A as soon as the January transfer window opens.
Always attentive when it comes to high-profile free agents, the Bianconeri would like to snap up the ex-Atletico Madrid star as a replacement for the current first-choice keeper Wojciech Szczesny.
Meanwhile, the Premier League giants have already identified Jan Oblak as a perfect candidate to take De Gea’s post should he opts to leave the Old Trafford.
