Paul Pogba’s contract expires at the end of June, and there’s still no clarity on where the midfielder will be playing next season.
Manchester United haven’t yet announced his exit, which may suggest they haven’t completely given up on having him around next season.
Pogba has been able to sign a pre-contract agreement since January, but there doesn’t appear to have been a huge rush to get him committed. Real Madrid don’t seem to making efforts, and whilst PSG have been repeatedly linked there doesn’t appear to be anything concrete right now.
Juventus have also been linked, with the idea being they’d take the Frenchman on a free transfer from Manchester United for a second time.
Calciomercato.it report the Turin club are ‘doing everything’ to try and get him back. It’s explained they could offer a total package of around €12m, with the player receiving around €10m after tax.
Italian clubs benefit from the country’s Growth Decree, which means players moving to the country pay a reduced level of tax. This gives clubs there a benefit as they’re able to offer a higher take-home salary than they would have otherwise been able to.
According to the report, Rafaela Pimenta, who worked closely with Mino Raiola, has arrived in Turin and is set to have a meeting with Juventus.
That meeting will either take place this evening or tomorrow, and more developments should be known after that.
