Over the past few weeks, there have been a number of contradicting claims regarding the future of Paul Pogba at Manchester United.

While it’s almost guaranteed the Frenchman will leave Old Trafford on a free this summer, his next destination remains shrouded in mystery.

Real Madrid don’t appear to be as keen as they once were, while Manchester City is an option the player is said to have dismissed, seemingly keen to move away from England.

That leaves Paris Saint-Germain, who could offer him a return to his home country, and Juventus, a club he knows very well from his four years there, as potential landing spots.

The Ligue 1 champions, however, per reports this week, aren’t ready to make a move for the Manchester United midfielder, which opens a door for Juventus.

Corriere Torino look at the situation on Friday, explaining the player ‘remains Juve’s number one desire’, even if the financial aspect of it all makes any move very, very difficult.

They point out ‘Pogba has really kept ties with Juve, and Turin, and it’s equally true that he did not exclude a priori the sequel to a saga that was amazing’.

Federico Cherubini has ‘already added a few talks with the midfielder’s entourage to take stock of the situation’, and the bottom line is that the Manchester United midfielder ‘hasn’t decided his future yet’.

Juventus quite like the idea of bringing in a player with 53.6m followers on Instagram and a further 10m or so on Twitter, as they search for a ‘franchise man’, who could be their poster boy for a few years to come until Dusan Vlahovic develops into the superstar they expect him to be.

Something to think about as we edge towards the final weeks of Pogba’s time at Manchester United.
