Juventus are reportedly looking to bring Manchester United star Juan Mata in for the second half of the season, as reported by fichajes.net.
While there have been suggestions that Mata could be included as part of a swap deal for Chile international Arturo Vidal, there is also a belief that the player could be targeted by the Old Lady of Turin by himself.
Daily Sport Mediaset are suggesting that Massimiliano Allegri, the Juventus manager, has specifically requested that the club look to sign Mata in January to improve their options in attacking midfield.
He is of the opinion that the acquisition of Mata would help their current forward options improve considerably.
Mata would reportedly accept a move to Juventus, who could fund the transfer by selling Man Utd target Arturo Vidal to Real Madrid.
Mata has found himself on the fringes of the first team since the start of the season, and this might inspire him to leave the club he only joined last January.
