Manchester United could reportedly turn their attentions towards Daniele Rugani as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues his summer hunt for a centre-back.

Manchester United are considering a move for Juventus defender Daniele Rugani, according to a report.

The Red Devils are desperate to sign a new centre-back, with Harry Maguire thought to be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first-choice target.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, however, Leicester digging their heels in over Maguire's £90m price tag could prompt United to turn their attentions towards Rugani instead.

United chiefs are already locked in negotiations with Juventus over a potential swap deal involving Romelu Lukaku and Paulo Dybala and could use these talks to propose a move for the Italian international centre-back.

Solskjaer's hunt for a new defender has become even more desperate after it was revealed that the knee injury sustained by Eric Bailly against Tottenham could keep the Ivorian out for up to five months.

Arsenal also hold an interest in Rugani, with the Gunners having reportedly offered to take the Italian on a two-year loan.
