Manchester United have been linked with a move to sign from Italian giant club Juventus ace Dejan Kulusevski in recent weeks, with reports in Italy suggesting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a big fan of the Swedish winger
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a big fan of Dejan Kulusevski and has tried to bring the Juventus ace to Old Trafford in the past, according to reports in Italy.
Kulusevski, who only completed a £31.5million move to Juve in January 2020 before being loaned out to Parma, has struggled to hit the ground running in his first full season at the club.
The Swede has been deployed as both a second striker and a winger under Andrea Pirlo this term, but he only has three goals to show for 26 appearances.
Nevertheless, reports suggest Solskjaer is eyeing up a potential deal to prise him away from Turin this summer.
According to Calciomercato, United are one of several teams who have ‘knocked on Juve’s door’ because Solskjaer ‘adores the qualities’ of Kulusevski.
It is believed the Red Devils boss has even tried to sign him on a previous occasion, perhaps as an alternative to top target Jadon Sancho in the previous summer and autumn transfer window.
However, despite Solskjaer’s clear admiration for the 20-year-old, Juve are understood to have no intention of selling him anytime soon.
Kulusevski is one of the players Andrea Pirlo, who is set to remain in charge next season in spite of a disappointing debut campaign at the helm, will continue to rebuild his side around
