There is reportedly an “undeniable desire” at Juventus to bring Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba back to the club.
The Frenchman’s future at Old Trafford looks somewhat uncertain, mainly due to a suspected poor relationship with manager Jose Mourinho.
Pogba has had stunningly good moments in a Man United shirt but hasn’t quite lived up to the expectations when he arrived at the club from Juventus for £89 million in August 2016.
He’s recently been linked with a move to a trio of clubs. FC Barcelona are clearly interested and a number of their star players have commented on Pogba as a player. Paris Saint-Germain are the main club of Pogba’s home nation and he grew up about an hour from their stadium. Juventus, meanwhile, are his former club.
Calciomercato, via Sport Witness, report that Juventus interest remains strong. However, they state that there is no chance that the Italian champions would look for a January deal for Pogba. If the Serie A club are to make a move for their former-star, it’ll be part of a long term strategy rather than an off-the-cuff decision.
United and Juventus face each other in Tuesday in the UEFA Champions League group stages and so Pogba will be pitted against his former club at Old Trafford.
The 25-year-old played a vital role in two recent comebacks for United. He was superb in a deep role in an epic 3-2 fightback against Newcastle United and then again was important when his confidence and freedom grew in a 2-2 draw away to Chelsea.
United have no desire to sell, but Juventus reportedly have an “undeniable desire” to buy. The saga will continue.
