Juventus rival Manchester United for Benfica whiz Renato Sanches

Manchester United face competition for Benfica whiz Renato Sanches.

Gazzetta World says Juventus have joined United in the race for Sanches.

The Red Devils had a £31m deadline day bid rejected last month but are determined to land the 18-year-old.

And United boss Van Gaal has been dealt another major blow as Serie A giants Juventus have expressed their interest in the midfielder.

The dynamic midfielder will cost £39m after Benfica added a buyout clause to his contract in an attempt to fend off potential suitors.
