After a short but impressive stay at Sassuolo, Juventus decided to give around 20 million euros to Merih Demiral’s services.
Nevertheless, the Turkish defender suffered a serious injury during his first campaign in Turin, and then struggled for playing time the following season.
Therefore, the central defense left Bianconeri last summer and joined Gian Piero Gasperini’s Atalanta.
The player is currently on loan until the end of the current promotion, but Orobici has an option to buy him for 28 million, which could become a liability under certain conditions.
But according to reports in the Turkish press (via Alt Juve), Bianconeri has not yet received an offer from Atalanta for the permanent acquisition of Demiral.
Therefore, Juventus would be willing to listen to other offers, and as the source explains, there could be an interesting proposal from Manchester United.
Old Trafford is currently home to Cristiano Ronaldo, who happens to be a good friend of the 24-year-old defender.
The report adds that the Red Devils would be willing to make an offer of around $ 30 million to snatch Demiral’s services.
However, the source also states that Atalanta still has the intention to buy the player’s outrights.

If Man United are really interested in Demiral and willing to pull on a tempting offer, La Dea will not waste the chance to make an instant profit on the sale.
We witnessed the exact same scenario last summer when Atalanta bought Cristian Romero from Juventus before immediately selling him to Tottenham for a bigger sum.
