Manchester United battling Arsenal for signature of centre-back – report

The January transfer window is almost upon us, and Louis van Gaal and his back room staff at Manchester United are plotting moves for the winter period which he hopes will fire his side to the Premier League title in his second year as boss.

The latest reports coming out of the Daily Mirror suggest that Manchester United are locked in a two way battle to sign Juventus’ highly thought of centre-half, Daniele Rugani.

The 21-year old made a great impression whilst on loan at Empoli last term, and has since returned to Juventus but has found his opportunities limited.

Rugani himself is frustrated with his lack of opportunities for Juve, and is seriously considering a move away from Turin this January. That means that if Manchester United can beat Arsenal to his signature, we could have yet another extremely talented youngster on our books.
