Juventus target United and Chelsea stars

Serie A giants Juventus have targeted Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic and Chelsea striker Fernando Torres as potential transfer targets, reports Mirror Football.

The Turin-based side have had a rejuvenation this season under Antonio Conte, and are currently unbeaten domestically and top of the Italian league with six games remaining.

Part of the reason for the Bianconeri’s revival this season is down to an active transfer policy last summer, and the club are planning to raid the Premier League when the transfer window reopens again.

Vidic has been a long-term prospect of Juventus, and the Italian club will hope to sign the centre half after a season on the sidelines through injury.

With Sir Alex Ferguson watching young prospects Jonny Evans, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones maturing this season, the newspaper indicate that the Red Devils may be willing to let Vidic leave for the right price.

Torres meanwhile has had a frustrating time at Stamford Bridge since a January 2011 move from Liverpool, and uncertainty over his future has alerted Juventus.

With Alessandro Del Piero and Marco Borriero on their way out of the Scudetto favourites, a £30 million bid for the World Cup-winning Spaniard is being prepared.
