‘The wall rises’ around Juventus man targeted by Man United
Posted On April 9, 2021
Juventus midfielder Dejan Kulusevski is set to stay at the club despite there being lingering interest from Man United, according to reports.
The 20-year-old made his first-team breakthrough with Italian outfit Atalanta. After a successful loan spell with Parma in 2019/20, Juventus signed him for €35m in January 2020.
Kulusevski rejoined Parma on loan for the rest of last season and he ended up with ten goals and eight assists from his 36 Serie A outings.

OPINION: Man Utd must resist urge to squeeze Lingard success
The Swede returned to Juventus at the start of this campaign. He has been a regular for the Italian giants this term and he has five goals and three assists from his 37 outings.
Calciomercato, as cited by Sport Witness, recently reported that Man United had made an enquiry for the defender.
A separate report from Corriere Torino suggests that there is very little chance of United signing the Juventus man.
Their manager Andrea Pirlo aims to revamp his squad this summer. It is believed that Matthijs De Ligt and Kulusevski are the main players he wishes to keep.
The report goes onto state that “the wall rises” around the midfielder and that Juventus gave United a “dry no” when they expressed their interest in him.
Meanwhile, Solskjaer has told reporters that he is unsure whether Edinson Cavani will still be a Man United player next season:
“I’ve kept in touch with Edi, of course, and we keep an open dialogue.
“He’s still unsure what he wants to do next season, which I find fine.
“It’s not been an easy year either for him or the rest of the world this season, so he still wants time to make his mind up.
“I’m very sure that we’ll get a good version of Edinson for the rest of the season,” the United boss said.
“He knows that this is the business end of the season, where we fight for the Europa League trophy and we can see the end line in the league.
“Only eight games left and you’re thinking about where you’re going to end up. He’s been so positive in and around the place, he’s been great to have.
“He’s been working hard now obviously to get fit and we’ve got him and now hopefully we can keep him fit for the next six, seven weeks.”
