Transfer Talk: United and Bayern in race for Juve star Vlahovic
Manchester United and Bayern Munich are set to battle to sign Juventus star Dusan Vlahovic this summer.
The Serbian hotshot's Juventus move has not panned out as expected so far with no silverware in two seasons.
And according to Italian transfer reporter Nicolo Schira, Vlahovic could be set to trigger a bidding war by asking to leave if Max Allegri stays at the club.
Juve's manager and top striker reportedly share a rocky relationship and the tactician's future is up in the air with Marseille boss and former Old Lady star Igor Tudor linked with the job.
Vlahovic, 23, was one of the world's most wanted talents after scoring 17 times in 21 Serie A games in a prolific first half of the 2020-21 season for Fiorentina.
Juve won the race and the 21-cap Serbian international has 23 strikes in 63 outings since his arrival in Turin last January.
United and Bayern are in the market for more firepower, with Harry Kane and Victor Osimhen among the superstar names being linked with both clubs, although Chelsea could rival the duo in any bidding war.
Erik ten Hag has been forced to rely on loanee Wout Weghorst and injury-prone Anthony Martial to lead the line, while Sadio Mane has not settled in Germany after replacing Robert Lewandowski.
