Serie A champions Juventus are preparing to make a summer bid for one of either Chelsea star Oscar or Manchester United ace Juan Mata, according to report from the Express.
Juventus are keen on signing an attacking midfielder before the start of next season to play in manager Massimiliano Allegri’s preferred 4-4-2 diamond formation, and have targeted Oscar and Mata as his prime candidates.
With Paul Pogba set to become a subject of massive interest this summer, the Italian giants could use the funds received from a potential transfer to aid their attempts to sign one of the Premier League duo.
Oscar has found regular playing time hard to come by at Stamford Bridge following a fallout with Blues boss Jose Mourinho, alerting Juve to his services.
Mata was also on the periphery of the first-team at Old Trafford, but his recent displays have convinced Red Devils chief Louis van Gaal to start him in their last few games.
