Juventus ‘working’ on a deal to re-sign Paul Pogba

Juventus are ‘working’ on a deal to re-sign Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

The Italian champions are interested in bringing the Frenchman back to Turin, having sold the 26-year-old in an £89m deal in 2016.

Pogba is believed to be keen to quit Old Trafford this summer, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side having failed to qualify for next season’s Champions League after a disappointing campaign.

The World Cup winner is said to be frustrated by United’s inability to compete for major honours and will seek an exit three years after returning to Manchester for a second spell.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Pogba could be set to return to a former side for the second time in his career, with Juventus ready to put together a package to bring Pogba back to a club where he won four consecutive Serie A titles between 2012-2016.

Despite not yet having appointed a new manager following Max Allegri’s departure, Juve are already planning their summer recruitment as they look to build a squad capable of European success after years of domestic dominance.

United would demand a significant fee to part with their club-record signing, with the Italian side ready to offer players in part-exchange to secure the deal.
