Juventus director, Fabio Paraticio, has spoken of the club’s ‘care’ for Paul Pogba amid speculation the club are interested in re-signing the Manchester United midfielder.
Pogba has struggled for consistency since moving to the Premier League from Juventus in a world-record deal four years ago, the France international having come under fierce criticism for his performances during a transitional period at Old Trafford.
The 27-year-old has previously hinted at the possibility of an exit with the likes of Real Madrid also reportedly holding a long-term interest in the World Cup winner, though former side Juve have emerged as the favourites for his signature in recent months.
Pogba previously enjoyed a hugely successful four-year spell with the Bianconeri between 2012 and 2016, winning four consecutive Serie A titles and establishing himself as one of the finest young players in world football.
The Italian champions re-signed former forward Alvaro Morata during the summer following indifferent spells for the Spain international at both Chelsea and Atletico Madrid, and Paraticio has now discussed the possibility of Pogba making a similar return to Turin.
‘As for Pogba, right now he is a Manchester United player and it is far too early to think about future transfer targets,’ Paraticio told Sky Sports Italia.
‘We all care for Pogba here, one of many ex-players who gave Juve so much, but it’s too early to talk about future objectives.
‘We are concentrated on constructing this team for this season, that is where our focus lies.’
