A return to Juventus for Real Madrid midfielder Emerson is under consideration in Turin.

Tuttosport says Juve coach Claudio Ranieri wants an experienced ball-winner to stiffen his midfield and has discussed signing Emerson with directors Alessio Secco and Jean-Claude Blanc.

Along with Emerson, his Real teammate Fabio Cannavaro also could make a shock return to the Bianconeri this summer.
