Calciomercato say that today could be the final goodbye in Paul Pogba’s Juventus exit. In a saga which they rightly call ‘exhausting’, Calciomercato explain that the lure of Manchester United, Jose Mourinho and a huge salary has just been too great for the French midfielder to refuse.
Given that Juventus have already signed players including Miralem Pjanic and Gonzalo Higuain this summer, it’s not seen as a desperate situation for them, rather as a new beginning.
Pogba’s famous Juventus number 10 shirt, worn by some of Juve’s greats, now has to find a new home, and Calciomercato feel Paulo Dybala to be a fitting recipient. The former Palermo player has eased into life at Juventus, and it would be no surprise to see him kick on further in the absence of Pogba.
Monday would make sense for an announcement, it’s a good time for coverage, but who could rule out Pogba and Mino Raiola wanting to milk the situation a little more.
