Man Utd challenged by Juventus for Ajax ace Kenny Tete

Manchester United have competition from Juventus in their bid to sign Kenny Tete from Ajax.

The talented 20-year-old right-back is set to snub a new contract with the Dutch giants and could be on his way out this summer according to the Daily Mirror.

United are showing considerable interest in Tete, who has impressed under Frank De Boer this term, but Italian champions Juventus are also significantly keen.

Max Allegri sees Tete as a long-term replacement for the ageing Stephan Lichtsteiner in Turin but Jose Mourinho is reportedly set to pursue the two-time Holland international in the upcoming transfer window provided he takes the Old Trafford reins from Louis van Gaal this summer.
