Transfer News: Real Madrid To Face Competition For Paul Pogba


Paul Pogba's currently drawing a lot of attention, as even though Manchester United seem keen to make a lot of improvements over his current deal to try and convince him to stay, several teams are reportedly interested in luring him out of Old Trafford as soon as possible.

As you may know by now, Real Madrid are currently leading the race to acquire his services, with Zinedine Zidane even giving him and his agent Mino Raiola an ultimatum: whether you come here right now, or don't come at all.

So, with Pogba also eyeing a move out of the team and claiming player for Zidane would be a dream come true, it looked like it was just a matter of time before Los Blancos completed his signing, but now, they may be facing some tough competition for the World Cup winner.

According to Sky Sports, Juventus want Pogba to make a comeback to the team, especially if they wind up appointing Maurizio Sarri, who's always been fond of his talents.

Pogba left Manchester United as he wasn't pretty much a part of their project to play in Turin, where he became one of the world's most prolific midfielders and thrived mightily.

The Frenchman would then go back to Old Trafford for a second spell with the team, but truth to be told, he's never been truly appreciated by their supporters and has never looked quite as comfortable as he once did with the Bianconeri.

His agent reportedly prefers him to make a move to Real Madrid rather than a Juventus comeback, but what is certain right now is the fact that they seem reluctant to further extend Pogba's stay at Old Trafford, at least unless they find the way to make him the highest-paid player in the English Premier League.
