Paul Pogba returning to Juventus from Manchester United would be “wonderful”, the Italian club’s director Pavel Nedved has admitted.
The French midfielder has been constantly linked with making the switch back to his former club, who he left in August 2016 to come to Man United.
When he signed for United for a then-world record £89 million, Pogba was making a return to Old Trafford. He had signed for Juventus in search of more first team football.
With a reported strained relationship with manager Jose Mourinho, an exit from the club looks possible for Pogba. FC Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain could be suitors for Pogba.
Nedved, though, who is a Juventus legend and now a director, admitted that the Old Lady would love to have Pogba back.
“I think Pogba is one of the best players in the world,” Nedved said while in conversation with Sky Sport Italia.
“So it’d be wonderful, but he’s at Manchester and therefore talking about it is futile.”
Nedved described Juventus as ‘alert’ regarding the Pogba situation at United, but did temporarily close down the discussion.
“We’re alert on the transfer market,” Nedved explained, “but January is a long way away.”
Pogba has made some thinly-veiled comments about United’s style of play and seemed to suggest a move to Barcelona was possible in the summer. However, in recent weeks, his comments have been less inflammatory.
The 25-year-old recently described Manchester United as his “home” and said “it will always be that way.”
He also labelled his career and current life as “really splendid”.
