Juventus have reportedly made an offer for Barcelona full-back Juan Miranda, who is currently on loan at Bundesliga side Schalke.

Sport are reporting the Serie A champions have renewed their interest in Miranda and are willing to offer a deal of up to €15 million including a rebuy option.

Miranda was sent out on loan, presumably to gain some valuable experiece, but has struggled to make much impact with Schalke.

The 19-year-old had to wait until the middle of December to make his debut for the club and has only managed 257 minutes in Germany this season.

Although Miranda has had to be patient at Schalke he has now started the club’s last three games in a row which suggests he might get more of a look-in during the second half of the season.

Barcelona therefore need to decide whether to keep him on loan at Schalke or accept Juventus’ offer and allow him to leave for Italy.
