Juventus are ready to bid £85m and add midfielder Adrien Rabiot to the deal for Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba, who is increasingly looking like he is on his way out of Old Trafford.
The 26-year-old has rarely featured for the Red Devils this season, only making 8 total appearances and contributing to two assists, as he has had to deal with constant injury problems.
The Old Lady are, however, still heavily interested in bringing the World Cup winner back to Turin with his French teammate Rabiot set to go the other way in a bid to convince United to let their star player go.
Rabiot has struggled to fit in at Juventus following his departure from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer on a free transfer as new manager Maurizio Sarri has failed to find a spot in the team for the talented midfielder.
With Pogba having a strained relationship with United, the Juve hierarchy are heavily interested in bringing their former player back.
Pogba joined Juventus as a youngster from United after Sir Alex Ferguson was unable to present him with ample first-team opportunities thus making Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, find his client a better opportunity.
Odds of Paul Pogba’s Next Club
1/1- Real Madrid
20/1- Paris Saint-Germain
The controversial midfielder stated in the summer that he would like to try a new challenge and move away from Manchester, which caused heavy rumours linking him with Real Madrid to begin.
However, the midfielder was forced to stay at Old Trafford after a move to the capital of Spain was unable to be completed.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been very supportive of Pogba this season despite being disappointed with his lack of appearances due to injuries this season.
The Norwegian has come out and stated that Pogba will not leave United as he still remains a key part of his plans.
Pogba joined the Red Devils in 2016 for a then world-record fee of £94m but now only has a year left on his contract and Ed Woodward could risk losing Pogba on a free for the second time if he doesn’t sign a new deal with the club.
