Juventus midfielder Stefano Sturaro will be Jose Mourinho's first signing at Manchester United, Tuttosport has revealed.
The midfielder struggled to make an impact with the Italian Champions this season and according to his agent he will leave the club if an important offer is made.
"Last year Stefano was a novelty and he was forgiven everything," Carlo Volpi is quoted as saying by Football Italia.
"It's clear that where he is now is completely different to somewhere like Genoa, which is a prestigious club, but there's less pressure.
"Crystal Palace? Yes, it's true, there was real appreciation from the London club. Stefano put in some very good performances in Champions League games, especially away in England, which is why he became a target for so many of their clubs.
"Leicester asked about him, but also some Russian clubs and some mid-to-high level Italian clubs. When a young player does well at Juventus, offers will come in offering more playing time.
"In that period he was playing regularly for Juventus, so the offers were sent back.
"Knowing the politics of Juventus, nobody is untouchable. That's the case for [Paul] Pogba and [Paulo] Dybala, and the same for Stefano too.
"There's high regard for him, and for our part there isn't a strong desire to change club. Stefano is happy in Turin."
