Italian Serie A News, Results, Analysis and Features on Football Soccer

Although Juventus and Manchester United come from completely different footballing cultures, there is a remarkable similarity between the two clubs, and not in terms of domestic triumphs, European successes, and being recognized as two of the most popular clubs in their respective countries.
