Paul Pogba is ‘fed up’ at Manchester United and is considering a return to former side Juventus as Real Madrid continue to stall on a deal.
The 26-year-old is believed to be desperate to leave Old Trafford this summer, having seen Ole Gunnar Solsksjaer’s side fail to secure Champions League football after a disappointing season.
United’s inability to compete for major honours has seen Pogba become disillusioned with life in Manchester, with the Independent now reporting the Frenchman will consider a return to Juventus amid interest from the Italian champions.
Pogba’s preference remains a move to join Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid, though the Spanish giants are currently prioritising deals for Chelsea’s Eden Hazard and Eintracht Frankfurt forward Luka Jovic.
United are reportedly demanding a fee in the region of £130m for the midfielder, with Real president Florentino Perez believed to favour a more financially viable move for Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen despite Zidane’s preference for Pogba.
With Madrid continuing to stall over a deal, Juventus have now expressed an interest in bringing Pogba back to Turin after four successful years at the club between 2012-2016.
Despite having not yet replaced the outgoing Max Allegri as manager, Juve are already planning their summer recruitment as they seek to build a squad capable of European success after years of domestic dominance.
The Serie A side are also likely to be able to put together a package that will entice United into a sale, with a belief that players such as Paulo Dybala, Joao Cancelo and Miralem Pjanic could be offered in part-exchange.
