Juve target Madrid duo – report

Italian champions Juventus are targeting Real Madrid midfield duo Mateo Kovacic and Dani Ceballos next summer, according to reports.

Ceballos only joined Madrid in the summer as he was signed in a €16m deal from Real Betis, while Kovacic moved to the Bernabeu from Juve’s rivals Inter in 2015.

A report in Turin-based Tuttosport claims both central midfielders are on the Old Lady’s transfer list, with both struggling to break into Zinedine Zidane’s first team.

Croat Kovacic has yet to start in La Liga this campaign and has come off the bench only three times while Spain Under-21 international Ceballos has started only twice in the division.

The report made no indication of the cost of either play.
