£170 million Manchester United exit? after Juventus confirm interest in summer deal
Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici says the club “love” Paul Pogba amid speculation linking them with a move for the Manchester United star.
Pogba left Juventus to return to United, where he played in the academy, in 2016 for a then world record fee worth £93.25m.
However, there has been constant speculation on the media about his future ever since his move back to Old Trafford, as the Frenchman has not lived upto expectations.
And that has led to a lot of transfer speculation in the media that the likes of Juventus are ready to pay close to £170 million to try and prise him back away from Manchester.
Paratici was asked about the World Cup winner and PSG’s Adrien Rabiot during the unveiling of manager Maurizio Sarri on Thursday.
“They are very good players,” he said on the Sky Sports website.
“Pogba plays for Manchester United, we love him a lot of course because he played here for several years.
“He grew here a lot and became world champion, so he certainly gave us a lot but he is a player of Manchester United.”
Pogba can be world class on his day and is a big player in the United squad, but he looks nothing like the dominant force he was at Juventus and he has become a source of frustration for the fans.
If the right offer does arrive this summer, then United SHOULD take it, as they could use the funds to bring in a couple of world class players that actually want to play for the club.
So it will be interesting to see if Pogba leaves as all indications suggest he wants out of Old Trafford this summer.
And if he does leave United could use the funds to try and bring in a few world class players that would make a difference to the side on a regular basis, as that is what Solskjaer needs to get back challenging for the Premier League title.
