Paul Pogba 'is wanted by Juventus and Paulo Dybala could be offered to Manchester United in return'


Paul Pogba ‘is wanted by Andrea Pirlo for shock Juventus return’… and Italian giants could offer Serie A MVP Paulo Dybala to Manchester United in return

  • Juventus have identified Paul Pogba as their key transfer target this summer 
  • The Frenchman spent four seasons in Turin before rejoining United in 2016
  • The Serie A champions could offer striker Paulo Dybala as part of the deal
  • The Argentinian forward has recently been crowned as Serie A’s MVP

Juventus have identified Manchester United’s Paul Pogba as their key summer midfield target and Paulo Dybala could be used as part of a swap deal.

United’s French midfielder has endured a topsy-turvy spell at Old Trafford since rejoining the Premier League club in 2016 from Juventus, where he won four Serie A titles.

Reports in Italy claim that Juventus head coach Andrea Pirlo spent several hours on Thursday discussing several transfer targets and outgoings with the club’s directors.

And according to Tuttosport, the Serie A champions could convince Manchester United to give up their star midfielder by offering striker Dybala as part of the deal.

The Argentinian forward was recently crowned ‘Serie A MVP’ after leading Juventus to yet another Scudetto title. The 26-year-old won the award despite scoring 20 fewer league goals then Juventus’ top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, Thursday’s meeting between Pirlo and the Juventus hierarchy reportedly saw the new Old Lady head coach name Dybala as the club’s key departure this summer.

The new coach is thought to be looking for a proper centre-forward option for next season and Dybala does not fit Pirlo’s criteria.

The striker was offered to Tottenham Hotspur 12 months ago but turned down the offer on deadline day. 

Other potential Juventus exits next season include Gonzalo Higuain, Aaron Ramsey and Douglas Costa.

Pogba, on the other hand, has worked his way back into Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s end-of-season plans, after a combination of niggling injuries and consistent transfer speculation ruling the Frenchman out for most of the 2019-20 season.

The 27-year-old looked like he was going to be part of an exciting attacking line-up for United next season, which includes the free-scoring forward trio of Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford. 

Though Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, has repeatedly hinted at the World Cup winner’s potential return to Juventus over the past six months.

The midfielder made 178 appearances for the Old Lady between 2012 and 2016, before joining United for a then-world record £89million transfer.

He has since played over 150 times for the Red Devils in all competitions and helped the club win the League Cup and the Europa League in his first season back at Old Trafford.
