Ex-Liverpool midfielder Emre Can has been linked with a move to Manchester Untied.

The 25-year-old German was a fan favourite at Anfield before joining Juventus on a free transfer in 2018. Since moving to Turin, Can has been unable to establish himself in the Serie A side

According to Tuttosport he wants out of the club and Manchester United are the preferred destination.

Can has been completely frozen out under new Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri, only making three substitute appearances so far this season. The ex-Red also faced the embarrassment of being left out of the club’s Champions League squad.

Speaking on his situation at Juventus, he said. “Last season I played a lot. Especially in important games for Juventus. And I also played well there. I haven’t had a chance this season.”

 

With first-team chances hard to come by, Can now looks set to leave Turin in January. Manchester United are currently in free fall and could do with a player of his calibre.

The move would be a huge step down for Can who left Liverpool to win trophies not battle for a top-half finish in the Premier League.

Can is just another player who has found out the grass isn’t greener away from Anfield.
