Andrea Pirlo was shown the door at the end of last season, and former Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri returned to steer the ship. Inter Milan dethroned Juventus making Allegri’s mandate clear to him.
Allegri wants to strengthen his midfield and has set his sights on bringing Pogba back to Turin.
The 38-year-old manager has the task of returning Juventus to the pinnacle of Italian football.
With one year left on his contract, Manchester United are not leaving anything to chance. They would rather sell him now than let him go for free. Should the Frenchman leave this summer, United have targeted Saul Niguez as anal replacement.
The Spanish midfielder became a subject of interest since Pogbad foot-dragging on contract renewal. The Red Devils have contacted the midfielder via his agents over the possibility of crossing over to Old Trafford.
With the departure of Jose Mourinho from Old Trafford, many believed that Paul Pogba would settle down and truly shine like the star he is. The Frenchman has, however, not delivered on the promise. Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola is on a tour of Europe, offering his client to the choicest clubs.
The player has, in subtle words, declared his desire to try new pastures and is not short of takers.
With the project at Old Trafford in full swing, Manchester United want to keep Pogba. They will, however, not stand in his way if a good offer comes for the mercurial midfielder.
According to Italian publication, CalcioMercato, the Red Devils have put an asking price on Pogba to the tune of £43m.
Manchester United is building a squad intending to dethrone Manchester City. The past two years have seen the club inch closer to being worthy challengers for the Premiership title.
The Red Devils have acquired two players with enough quality to walk into any team in the world but may not through. To sign more players, they need to shed some fat. An unsettled Pogba is a prime candidate for sourcing the funds they need to bring in more players.
In Paris, PSG is building a super squad too, and are trying to convince Mbappé to remain at the club. The belief in the hallowed halls of PSG is that Mbappé could stay with the acquisition of Paul Pogba.
With the club heavily linked with Pogba in the past few weeks, Liverpool turned down the opportunity to sign the French midfielder. They made it clear to Raiola that their interest would only be piqued in January when Pogba could be a free agent.
Pogba returned to Manchester United in the summer of 2016 for a then-record transfer fee of £89m.
