Juventus are monitoring Paul Pogba’s situation at Manchester United and are keen on bringing the French midfielder back to Turin.
The ex-Juve man has had a mixed season in the Premier League and a host of reports in English, Spanish and Italian media have linked him with a move to either Juventus or Real Madrid.
Corriere dello Sport report that Juve want to make a ‘present’ of Pogba to celebrate having won their eighth successive Scudetto this season.
The report suggests that Pogba’s future doesn’t lie in Manchester following a season where he’s been critized a great deal while Juve have never lost hope of bringing Pogba back ‘home’.
French paper L’Equipe have reported on similar lines suggesting that Pogba has already informed his teammates of his intention to leave United this summer.
Juve’s main rivals for Polpo’s signature are expected to be Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain with the current European champions in pole position as club president Florentino Perez is planning a big summer and Pogba is one of the objectives.
Zinedine Zidane intends to rebuild the Madrid midfield by bringing in Pogba which makes Spain a more likely destination for the 26-year-old but PSG and Juve remain keen, with the Bianconeri relying on their strong relationship with Mino Raiola.
Should a potential deal take place, Corriere dello Sport suggest that significant sales would need to be made with Douglas Costa, Miralem Pjanic or Alex Sandro being sold to finance the coup.
