Paul Pogba is likely to move abroad when his Man Utd contract expires this summer, with Europe’s biggest clubs preparing to pounce; Sky Sports looks at his return to Old Trafford, including the never-ending debate about his best position and his relationship with Jose Mourinho. Juventus are meeting Paul Pogba’s representatives on Monday as they begin talks over a potential return to Turin.
The 29-year-old is set to leave United when his contract ends next month and he cannot officially speak to any English club until then, making him increasingly likely to move abroad.
Juventus have made the first move by inviting his agent Rafaela Pimenta for talks in Turin to understand the feasibility of a potential transfer.
Pimenta, a Brazilian lawyer, is currently looking after Pogba’s interests after his former agent Mino Raiola died in April.
As well as Juventus, Pogba’s representatives remain in dialogue with Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain. A potential stay in the Premier League has also not been ruled out.
The France international would be open to a return to Turin, where he played between 2012 and 2016 and would reunite with his former boss Max Allegri.
Juventus would not be able to offer Pogba a better financial package than their competitors, but know that he will make a footballing decision and hope he will choose their project.
Should a transfer materialise, it would be the second time the Italian giants have signed Pogba on a free transfer from United.
In 2012, Juventus signed the then-19-year-old and sold him back to United for £94.5m in 2016 after he flourished into one of Europe’s best young stars.
Pogba registered one goal and nine assists for United in an injury-troubled season as he continues to fight to be fit for their final game of the season at Crystal Palace on Sunday.
