Juventus and Manchester United had plenty of contact over the summer, with Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba, Paulo Dybala and Mario Mandzukic all being the subject of enquiries between the two sides.

However, sporting director Fabio Paratici has now revealed that United enquired about another player on Juve's books - defender Merih Demiral.



In the end, Lukaku joined Inter Milan after United pulled out of the race for Dybala, while Pogba and Mandzukic remain at their clubs.



The Turk was requested by Milan but was also approached by Manchester United."

The potential swap deal for Lukaku and Dybala had legs, but in the end no business was done with Juventus.

In the end, Harry Maguire joined for a world record £80m fee for a defender, but Paratici told Gazzetta dello Sport how United and AC Milan enquired about Demiral's availability.

The Turkish international, 21, only joined from Sassuolo this summer for €18m, but it seems United made an enquiry as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looked for central defensive reinforcements.
