MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly ready to enter the race to sign Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic.
The Serb only joined Juve in January this year but has yet to light up the world in Turin.
Following the Italian giants’ premature exit from the Champions League, they may have to raise funds amid financial woes.
And that could see them pulling the plug on Vlahovic’s stint at the club after just 12 months.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Man United are now among the list of clubs interested in pursuing the 22-year-old.
The Red Devils are keen to sign a striker in January to replace the axed 37-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo.
In order to sign Vlahovic, however, they have to prevail against strong competition.
The report adds that United’s Prem rivals Arsenal and Chelsea are keen on the former Fiorentina star.
While European giants Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain are “watching” the situation.
Vlahovic has scored 16 goals in 36 games since joining Juve.

His tally this season includes seven appearances in 15 games in all competitions.
Vlahovic was recently forced to deny outlandish rumors that he was having an affair with his Serbia team-mate Predrag Rajkovic’s wife Ana.
Speaking to reporters, he said: “I’m sorry that I have to start the press conference at the World Cup this way, but I have to speak about it because this is my name.
“From what we all read and hear, there is no reason to comment on something so absurd.
“Obviously these people are bored and have nothing better to do because they’re frustrated or angry, but working against the national interest of the team at the moment is obviously their main job.
“We are more united than ever and the atmosphere in the squad has never been so good. These stories are ridiculous, I just want to protect my name and integrity so I will take legal action if necessary.”
Serbia were eliminated in the group stage, although Vlahovic scored against Switzerland.
