Juventus meet Manchester United to discuss Pogba transfer

Juventus officials have met with Manchester United to discuss the possible transfer of Paul Pogba.

The Italian champions are believed to be interested in re-signing the midfielder, who spent four successful seasons in Turin before returning to Manchester United in a then world-record deal in 2016.

Pogba is reportedly keen to leave Old Trafford this summer, having grown frustrated at the club’s inability to challenge for major honours and has also been linked with Spanish giants Real Madrid.

According to Sky Sports, Juventus’ sporting director Fabio Paratici has travelled to Man Utd’s office in London for talks over a deal to take the 26-year-old back to Serie A.

Portuguese international full-back Joao Cancelo is believed to be part of the discussions, as Juventus prepare a player plus cash deal for the World Cup winner.

Cancelo had been a reported target for Manchester City, however their interest is said to have cooled with Danilo’s expected departure having not materialised.

According to the report, Paratici’s trip also included meeting’s with Chelsea and Lyon as Juventus bid to secure deals for Maurizio Sarri and Tanguy Ndombele.

The Italian side are believed to have finalised a deal for Chelsea boss Sarri to replace Max Allegri as the club’s new manager, whilst they are interested in the highly-rated French international Ndombele as they bid to strengthen their midfield options.
