Juventus are linked with a loan swoop for Manchester United's former record signing Juan Mata.

Juventus are allegedly lining up a January move for Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata.

The club's former record signing could struggle to hold down first-team football this season following manager Louis van Gaal's summer spending spree, and the Italians are keen to take him on loan, according to Tuttosport.

Mata, who joined United from Chelsea in a deal worth £37m, could apparently be allowed to leave at the cut price of £24m, but Juventus are said to be pushing for a temporary switch due to financial limitations.

The playmaker has also been linked with a move back to his native Spain, with Atletico Madrid and Valencia rumoured to be among the interested parties.
