Manchester United attacker Juan Mata emerges as a target for Italian champions Juventus, according to a report.

Manchester United attacker Juan Mata has reportedly emerged as a target for Italian champions Juventus.

Mata has worked his way back into the United team in recent weeks, but the 30-year-old's contract with the Red Devils will expire at the end of this season, and his future is far from secure.

The Spaniard will be free to discuss terms with foreign clubs at the start of 2018, and according to the London Evening Standard, Juventus are considering an approach for the versatile attacker.

Mata has scored 41 times and registered 34 assists in 196 appearances for United since a 2014 move from Chelsea.

Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho has previously said that he is keen to keep hold of the playmaker, although an agreement is yet to be reached.

United are also believed to be fearful that Juventus could attempt to sign David de Gea on a free transfer, with the Spaniard yet to agree a new contract at Old Trafford.
