Emre Can joins Juventus absentee list for Man Utd clash

Emre Can has been ruled out of Juventus' Champions League clash at Manchester United on Tuesday.

Can looks likely to miss a quick Champions League reunion with old rivals United after Juventus confirmed he's facing surgery on a thyroid problem.

The German joined the Turin giants on a free transfer from Liverpool in the summer, and has featured 10 times for his new club this season.

A brief statement on their website read: "Emre Can will undergo clinical tests and investigations for a thyroid nodule that could also require surgical treatment."

Can was an unused substitute for Juve's 1-1 draw with Genoa on Saturday , his club said that he could soon go under the knife.
