This summer, the 29-year-old Frenchman is set to leave Old Trafford as a free agent. Pogba has always been a standout player for France on the international scene, but his record at Manchester United has been uneven.
Pogba is one of several talents who will leave United before new manager Erik ten Hag comes over. Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, and Edinson Cavani are also set to become free agents. Nemanja Matic will also be free to depart for no reason.
According to the Mirror, Juventus are the frontrunners to sign Pogba. Pogba played for Juventus from 2012 to 2016 and is said to be warmly regarded by the club’s decision-makers.
Goal has now put more light on the subject, claiming that Juventus would make an offer next week.
Talks with Pogba’s camp are set to begin, and it has been reported that they would “pull out all the stops” to make a deal happen.
However, as previously reported by the Mirror, Pogba may have to accept a big wage cut to return to Turin.
He is said to earn roughly £350,000 each week at United. According to the Mirror, Juve may only be able to provide half that sum.
However, aside from financial concerns, Juventus may face more serious issues.
Goal add PSG, the French superpower, is anticipated to compete. As a result, Juventus have allegedly asked Pogba to keep them updated on all bids he gets from potential suitors.
It has been reported that Juventus is particularly concerned about PSG’s involvement in the transfer battle. They are hoping, though, that their previous links with Pogba would help their cause.
With Matic also gone, Ten Hag’s midfield will look quite different from the one Ralf Rangnick has used.
Fred and Scott McTominay will be retained, while James Garner, who impressed on loan at Nottingham Forest, may be given a chance to flourish.
However, at least one world-class addition is required, and all indications point to Frenkie de Jong.
