Manchester United are believed to be tracking Juventus' Michele Paolucci.

The 21-year-old is currently on loan at Ascoli and scored a twice in Sunday's Serie A win over Messina.

Paolucci has a deal at the Stadio Delle Alpi until 2009, but could be released early should United come calling

"My future? I have a contract with Juve until 2009," Paolucci told Corriere dello Sport.

But asked about rumours linking him with a possible move to Old Trafford, Paolucci said: "I knew something. There would be a possibility to free myself early.

"I wait on Juve, but should Manchester call I wouldn't have to think for more than a minute."
