Paul Pogba has less than two months left on his contract at Manchester United and is likely to leave Old Trafford as a free agent for the second time in his career.
Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain have been pushed forward as the two clubs who are in the picture to sign the midfielder
TuttoMercatoWeb state a meeting between the Manchester United man’s entourage and Juve earlier this week ‘officially opened’ the door for him to return.
It’s claimed the Old Lady’s offer is ‘expected shortly’. TMW state the ‘benchmark is the PSG offer’ of €10m per year plus bonuses.
The Ligue 1 side’s chief, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, has full focus on renewing Kylian Mbappè’s contract so that he can stop the forward joining Real Madrid.
Al-Khelaifi has put ‘everything else on standby’, including talks with Pogba’s entourage. This could benefit Juve in the race to sign their former midfielder.
Calciomercato.it also explain Juventus have held a first summit and the ‘new contacts will follow’ soon to acquire the Manchester United player’s services.
However, Italian journalist Furio Focolari has issued a warning to the Turin club not to sign Pogba, due to his poor performances for the Red Devils.
“Pogba’s performance in the last three years is as a third or fourth-tier player. Dybala scored 11 goals in his worst season, Pogba’s performance is close to zero,” Focolari told Radio Radio, relayed by Calciomercato.it.
“I’m talking about performance, not quality. I don’t know why it hurts so much. I have huge doubts about him. However, I would not take a player too late in their careers, like Perisic or Di Maria.”
