Manchester United have opened discussion between representatives of Juventus and Paul Pogba ahead of a potential transfer, according to L’Equipe.
Jose Mourinho is said to be keen on brining the Frenchman back to the club and L’Equipe say the club are working on a substantial financial package in hopes of persuading him to make an Old Trafford return.
Pogba is currently under contract until 2019 and Mourinho would have to meet Juventus’ staggering €120m demands if he wants to land his services this summer.
The Italian club can’t be forced into selling their star asset, but money talks and they could be looking to cash in on his rising valuation after an impressive Euro 2016 showing.
United can’t offer Pogba Champions League football this year but he could be persuaded by the chance to work at the heart of Mourinho’s improved United side in the Premier League.
Real Madrid are also interested in signing Pogba but reports suggest talks between both camps came to an halt, United should be taking advantage of the situation and doing everything they can to get the deal done.
We certainly don’t lack the funds to deliver Mourinho’s principal target, but even if he is one of Europe’s hottest young talents is it too much money to spend on one player?
