Serie A Champions Juventus aware that bids for Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba are likely to come in from a group of clubs that include Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid and also Chelsea are not wasting any time by lining up Chelsea’s 27-year-old Brazilian midfielder Ramires.

The Italian club is aware that Ramires is no longer a starter at Stamford Bridge and would like to exploit the situation by offering Chelsea £12 million for him or a possible player plus cash deal for either Pogba or Vidal.

Manchester United have been heavily linked with Chilean international Vidal, and with Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas starters at the club Ramires is forced to compete with Andre Schurrle and Willian for a place out on the right.
