Report: Juventus Planning January Loan Move For Paul Pogba

Juventus are reportedly planning a move for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba in January on loan following the Frenchman’s recent struggles at Old Trafford.

Italian publication Tuttosport claim that Juve will make an offer to sign their former midfielder on an initial six-month loan deal with an option then to buy Pogba for a fee in excess of €70 million.

Tuttosport also outline that despite wanting the deal for the World Cup winner to be completed in January, Juventus may wait until the end of the season and sign Pogba with the proceeds of the sale of defender Alex Sandro who is expected to leave after his contract dispute with the Italian giants.

 

Pogba left Juventus in 2016 to return to Manchester United in what was a world record fee at the time of £105 million after spending four seasons in Turin, but the 25 year old has come under a lot of criticism since his arrival back at Old Trafford.

Despite Pogba playing for Manchester United in the Champions League this season against his potential suitors Juventus, he would still be able to feature for the Old Lady in Europe as UEFA recently abolished the ‘cup-tied’ rule.

Pogba is also said to be open to a reunion with Massimiliano Allegri and is excited by the prospect of playing in the same side as reigning Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
