Juventus are reportedly preparing a player-plus-cash bid for Manchester United wantaway midfielder Paul Pobga, according to reports in England and Italy
Paul Pogba is likely to depart Manchester United at the end of the season, with Juventus and Real Madrid going head-to-head for securing his services.
Four years after returning to Old Trafford for £89million, the Frenchman is ready to move on, with his agent Mino Raiola already working hard to broker him a transfer to either Serie A or La Liga.
The 27-year-old has endured an injury-plagued season, making just eight appearances in all competitions, which has seen his indispensability second-guessed by the Red Devils.
Bruno Fernandes’ stunning impact upon his winter arrival from Sporting Lisbon has already overshadowed Pogba’s influence among the fans, convincing United that they can afford to offload to the World Cup winner this summer.
The coronavirus outbreak is likely to see the regular cash offers replaced with swap deals, something similar to the NBA draft, and the Bianconeri have already adjusted their bid accordingly.
Juventus ready to offer Man Utd Paulo Dybala or Pjanic for Paul Pogba in ‘win-win’ transfer https://t.co/0ZBAnhVSX4— The Sun – Man Utd (@SunManUtd) March 27, 2020
As per the Express Sport, the reigning Serie A holders are studying the prospect of offering between €50million and €60million plus Paulo Dybala or Miralem Pjanic as a makeweight.
Dybala was close to leaving the Allianz Stadium last summer, but his move to Tottenham Hotspur fell through.
Despite regaining his best and re-establishing himself as a starter under Maurizio Sarri, the Argentinean’s future in Turin is still hanging in the balance.
He and his girlfriend also tested positive for COVID-19 and unfortunately developed ‘strong symptoms’ according to his own words.
“I developed strong symptoms, but today I already feel much better,” Dybala confessed.
“Now I can move better, walking and trying to train. I could hardly breathe, I couldn’t do anything after five minutes.
“My muscles ached. Fortunately, Oriana and I are better now.”
