Juventus are reportedly preparing to part ways with Aaron Ramsey after just one year in cost-cutting measures brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.
The 29-year-old has struggled for form and fitness since joining the Serie A champions on a free transfer from Arsenal last summer.
And Ramsey’s £400,000-a-week wages could see him fall victim to the coronavirus recession with Juventus keen to save money.
However, Ramsey’s huge wages could prove a stumbling block for United and any other Premier League club.
He has failed to nail down a regular place in Maurizio Sarri’s side this season, starting just nine Serie A games.
But Ramsey did leave his mark in Juventus’ last game before coronavirus halted football as he scored and assisted a goal each in a 2-0 win over title rivals Inter Milan in March.
In February, Sarri admitted Ramsey had endured a difficult opening season in Italy.
He said: “Aaron Ramsey is growing both as a condition and a belief.
“It was not easy for him to adapt, coming from the Premier League and from a bad injury.”
Ramsey was left out of Juventus’ squad for their Coppa Italia semi-final second leg clash against AC Milan, which takes place on Friday, due to fatigue.
Both sides played out a 1-1 draw in the first leg back in February.
Ramsey has made 24 appearances in all competitions for Juventus this season, scoring four goals and registering just one assist.
