Montenegrin international confronts Juve supporter at training.
Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic was involved in a row with a supporter at training on Sunday, as speculation intensifies of interest from Manchester United.
The 29-year-old has been an integral part of the Bianconeri’s success over the last two years, helping them successfully clinch back-to-back league titles.
However, with the summer arrivals of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente, competition for places has increased and speculation has suggested that the Turin giants may well be willing to listen to offers for the Montenegrin international.
With emotions running high, Vucinic broke away from training at the club’s base at Chatillon on Sunday afternoon to respond to criticism from a supporter in attendance.
Having walked over to confront the supporter with a fence separating the pair, it took Marco Storari, Marco Motta and Massimo Carrera to pull Vucinic away while boss Antonio Conte continued to direct proceedings in training, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
It is unclear as to what the supporter had said to Vucinic to spark off the tense scenes, but it is reported that the player returned to the area after training to sign autographs and apologized to the fan in question.
Nevertheless, rumours of an exit continue to surround the 29-year-old striker, despite speculation earlier this summer suggesting that Alessandro Matri and Fabio Quagliarella would be sacrificed in order to make room for Tevez and Llorente.
However, reports have suggested that Vucinic is also considering his options ahead of the new season, with United credited with an interest while a reunion with former coach Luciano Spalletti at Zenit is also an option.
