The lowdown: Red Devils
The Red Devils and Chelsea were credited with an interest in Juranovic this week as both Premier League big hitters attempt to add adequate strength in depth to their ranks.
The 26-year-old Croatia international only arrived in Glasgow 12 months ago and played a pivotal role in the side that lifted the Scottish Premiership title last term, directly contributing to four goals in 26 league outings.
Having previously been linked to Atletico Madrid this summer, Juranovic remains in situ at Celtic, however, one well-informed onlooker has suggested a move to Old Trafford could be a possibility…
The latest: ‘Take that rumour seriously…’
He said: “Interestingly, I’m told that he’s (McClaren) playing a part in this guy.
“He’s recommended him and it feels like he’s a player that would fit in well, so I do think there’s reason to take that rumour seriously.”
The verdict: Why not…
With speculation continuing to link Aaron Wan-Bissaka with a move away from Old Trafford this summer, question marks surrounding Diogo Dalot and the loan exit of Alex Telles, adding reinforcements at full-back could be pivotal before the September 1 deadline.
Capable of playing as a conventional right-back, centre-back, left-back and in midfield areas, signing a player of Juranovic’s supreme versatility would be a brilliant addition to the United ranks.
Available for a mooted £15million according to 90min, beating competition from domestic rivals and landing the Croatian – who was dubbed a ‘beautiful footballer’ by football journalist Josh Bunting – would be somewhat of a low-key but no less impressive capture.
