Juventus director Fabio Paratici has ruled out a move for Emre Can this January amid rumours Manchester United are interested in signing the midfielder.
Can has struggled for regular playing time under Maurizio Sarri this term and has been heavily linked with a winter move, along with Adrien Rabiot who has also dropped down the pecking order in Turin.
Reports have been circulating suggesting that Can could be offered an escape route by United, with the club keen on luring the German back to the Premier League.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is on the hunt for midfield reinforcements, with Paul Pogba’s future in serious doubt and Nemanja Matic expected to leave the club in the coming months.
However, it appears the Red Devils will have to look elsewhere after Juve’s chief football officer Paratici insisted Emre Can would be going nowhere.
“He is staying with us,” Paratici told Sky Sport Italia. You
“He is one of the most coveted midfielders.
“He has some opportunities and so do we, but I think he can be an important player for our project.”
