A couple of years after they let one of their best players go on a record transfer fee, Juventus is keen to re-sign Paul Pogba and pair him up with Cristiano Ronaldo in a team that's eager to win the Champions League after all the successes they’ve had at a national level.
The Old Lady is reportedly set to give up two players in order to land the Frenchman, who hasn’t had the best moments at Old Trafford since his comeback from Juve in 2016.
Even though the 2018/19 season didn’t start the best way for Paul due to his back and forth with Jose Mourinho, things started to get better once the Portuguese boss was sacked. With the arrival of club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the helmsman, Pogba has recovered his level and now he’s followed by some of the best clubs in Europe.
Real Madrid appear as the front-runners to acquire him given the fact that Pogba himself has stated his desire to join the Spanish side and play under Zinedine Zidane’s rule. Though, that doesn’t mean everything has been said on this matter, as Juventus can be a great candidate to purchase Pogba as far as they offer an appealing deal to the Red Devils.
According to Sunday Express, Juventus are willing to offer both Paulo Dybala and Alex Sandro to United in return for the French midfielder. Dybala has been under the radar of the English team as well as Sandro, who’s been linking to a move to England in recent years.
The Argentinian forward didn’t have the best season in Italy this one, failing to remain as a consistent player in the starting XI in front of Cristiano Ronaldo and Mario Mandzukic; Dybala said he wanted to stay with the club, but if his exit means Juve can get Pogba, maybe his days at Allianz Stadium are coming to an end. As for Sandro, the Brazilian left-back has been stating his desire to leave the club in order to find new challenges and Chelsea and Manchester United appear to be the strongest candidates to sign him.
Perhaps the Madrid option looked like the best one for Pogba, but maybe a return to the club that made him the player he is today doesn’t seem too bad now.
