Manchester United star Paul Pogba’s contract expires in June and without an agreement with the Red Devils over a new deal, he will leave Old Trafford as a free agent for the second time.

According to IlBiancoNero, the midfielder is the ‘dream long cherished’ by Juventus, a club where he spent four seasons between 2012 and 2016, before returning to United.

It’s claimed ‘consent has been already given’ to the move by the 28-year-old.

The France international shares close ties with his former teammates, who are still at the Turin club. This can support the potential operation, along with the help of a decisive figure like his agent, Mino Raiola, who has good ties with the Old Lady.

His ‘preference has always been Juve, his will is clear; to return to being a darling of all Juventus fans’.

With Pogba’s contract at United expiring at the end of this season, he can change clubs on a free transfer.

The only obstacle for Massimiliano Allegri’s side is the salary. In addition to this, he will be entitled to receive a signing on bonus plus a commission has to be paid to his agent.

Juventus have adapted a new salary structure and the World Cup winner will be forced to take a pay cut, if he were to join them.

Apart from the salary, they must also pay ‘great attention’ to the competition from Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.

Los Blancos are firm favourites to sign Kylian Mbappé on a free transfer and his arrival in the Spanish capital could be ‘tempting’ for Pogba to pick Real Madrid over other suitors.
