Juventus are intensifying their interest in Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj. The Daily Mail says word has reached Januzaj's agent that Juventus coach Antonio Conte wants to adds the 18-year old to his title-winning squad and is eager to begin contract negotiations as soon as possible.

That could be in a matter of months, unless United can come up with a package that is acceptable to the Belgian teenager and persuades him to end a deadlock over his future that has lasted since April.

Juventus are acutely aware that Barcelona are also interested in Januzaj, while Manchester City have been strongly linked with a move for him. Sources in Belgium and Italy have repeatedly included City among his admirers, though Etihad sources have denied the claims.
