Juventus are about to enter the bidding for in-demand Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, according to a report.
United are rumoured to have made contact with Lyon ahead of the summer transfer window as they are desperate to see off competition from bitter rivals City, just like they did when signing Fred last year.
Italian outlet Rai Sport indicates that Ndombele is also a target for Juventus, though, with Massimiliano Allegri looking to further bolster his midfield ranks, despite already agreeing a deal to sign free agent Aaron Ramsey.
However, it is claimed that Lyon are holding out for around £78m for the four-cap France international, which could prove prohibitive to any deal from Juve's perspective.
Ndombele joined Les Gones from Amiens last season and has already racked up 55 Ligue 1 appearances.
