JUVENTUS can beat Chelsea, Manchester City and United to Erling Haaland.
That's the shock verdict of ex-Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino, who tips the Italians to spend big again this summer following their £99.2million capture of Cristiano Ronaldo two years ago.
Barcelona and Real Madrid are also interested in Borussia Dortmund goal sensation Haaland, despite his £150million valuation and reported wage demands of £600,000 a week.
And Cascarino believes Juventus are ready to flex their financial muscle after a season of transition.
Juve are third in Serie A, 11 points behind leaders Inter Milan, so a tenth title in a row is highly unlikely
But ex-Republic of Ireland star Cascarino has warned the rest of Europe to beware Juventus in the next transfer window- especially over Norway superstar Haaland.
Cascarino told talkSPORT: “A very likely possible move will be Juventus because they bought Ronaldo at 33 for £99m.
“You’re starting to see the spending, like they did in the 80s where they are prepared to pay big wages and big sign-on fees.

“If you’re prepared to go and sign Ronaldo at 33 at £99m, you could easily go and sign Haaland.
“They’re going to be a team challenging [for the Champions League] in the next five years.
“Juve would definitely go for Haaland because Ronaldo is 36, but you’d still want to get him to the football club.”
