Juve offered Man Utd two players for failed Pogba swap
JUVENTUS reportedly offered Manchester United two players for Paul Pogba.
Juve are keen to see Paul Pogba return to Italy and and offered Manchester United two stars to tempt them to part with the World Cup winner in the summer. Pogba has struggled to hit his top form this season under the guidance of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The £89million midfielder has often found himself on the bench with Bruno Fernandes, Scott McTominay and Fred ahead of him in the pecking order.
Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, has recently spoken about his desire to take the star away from Old Trafford.
“There’s no point beating about the bush. It’s better to speak out clearly, look forward and avoid wasting time to find culprits,” he said.
“Paul is unhappy at Manchester United, he can’t manage to express himself like he wants to and like people expect him to.
“He needs to change team, he needs a change of scenery.
“He has a contract that will expire in a year and a half, in the summer of 2022, but the best solution for all parties is a transfer in the next window.
“Otherwise the Old Trafford club, which I have a great relationship with, knows well that they would risk losing him on a free transfer, given that at the moment it’s not the player’s intention to extend the contract.”
Transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano claims Juventus have already touched base with United in the previous transfer window.
And they apparently offered Miralem Pjanic, who is now with Barcelona, and Douglas Costa.
“Juventus offered Pjanic and Douglas Costa to Manchester United for Paul Pogba to start talks, Manchester United turned it down,” Romano said on the Here We Go podcast.
