Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri opens up on possible £130 million Manchester United Pogba deal
JUVENTUS boss Maurizio Sarri has admitted he likes Manchester United star Paul Pogba amid plenty of transfer speculation over the midfielder.
Pogba has been in the headlines for al the wrong reasons over the past few months as the Frenchman is seeking to leave the club in search of a fresh challenge.
Pogba has not fulfilled the potential that United expected when they acquired him from Juventus back in 2016 and he has looked nothing like the world class midfielder that helped Juventus dominate the Seria A.
That has led to a lot of speculation in the media that the likes of Juventus and Real Madrid could come calling in the next few weeks, as both are interested in the Frenchman and the midfielder is interested in a move to their respective clubs.
Sarri became Juve manager earlier this summer after leaving Chelsea to move to Turin, and the Italian has been asked about the potential of signing Pogba this summer.
“I like him very much,” Sarri said on the TMW website. “But he’s a Manchester United player.
“I’m not the technical director [Fabio Paratici] so I don’t know the situation. We know with the club what we want to do and we are working on what we want to do.
“What I’m looking forward to is tomorrow’s match [vs Tottenham] and working bit by bit. We have time for the rest and we’ll see what will happen.”
Pogba is a man that is keen to leave, his mind has been made up, his head is no longer at United, and that means United need to sell.
Having him in the squad next season could damage any success that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to have and if the right offer comes, then they should sell.
But they need to get any potential deal done quickly as they will not have much time to find an adequate replacement with the transfer window coming towards a conclusion.
