Juventus Keen on Bayern Pair Goretzka and Mazraoui

Juventus have laid eyes on two Bayern Munich players, Noussair Mazraoui and especially Leon Goretzka, ahead of the summer window. They had already tracked the midfielder in the past. Manchester United are also after him too, TuttoSport informs (via MSN). They are looking for alternatives to Teun Koopmeiners, who might turn out to be too pricey.

Per Sky Sport DE (via OneFootball), the veteran could depart Bavaria after a few years. The Bianconeri coach Massimiliano Allegri indicated him as reinforcement he’d like to bring in to the management.

According to Tuttomercatoweb ’s Mirko Di Natale, Juventus would need to shell out €40M to onboard Goretzka. He’s not top of the list for the Old Lady, but he could become an option down the line. He has been at Bayern Munich since joining in a Bosman move from Schalke 04 in 2018. The stalwart has amassed 205 appearances, 36 goals, and 40 assists since. He has 57 caps with Germany.

Instead, the Turin side pursued Mazraoui in the past while they were looking for a wing-back. He’s represented by Rafaela Pimenta. They ultimately landed on Timothy Weah, on top of bringing back Andrea Cambiaso, in that role.

Our Take on Juventus and Goretzka

If they are starting to contemplate some veterans, which Cristiano Giuntoli doesn’t usually sign, either they have already decided to keep and listen to Allegri’s advice, or they are getting the sense that Adrien Rabiot won’t renew his expiring contract.
