It is understood that Juventus wanted to bring the midfielder to Turin in January of this year but the deal fell through as both the clubs couldn’t agree on a player exchange deal and Manchester United wanting a transfer fee of over 100 million euros also made it difficult for the Italian side to make a deal for the 27-year-old. Paulo Dybala was the reported player Bianconeri were offering in exchange for Paul Pogba.
Manchester United are hoping to renew the contract of their star player but no advancement has been made until now. Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola recently stated ‘We are talking about renewal, but calmly, very calmly. Without stress,’ which clearly indicates that the French midfielder might look for a change of scenery.
It is understood that the reason for the delay in Pogba signing a new deal remains his desire to play for Juventus again. The 27-year-old is hopes that the Italian side, who wanted to sign him earlier in the year will also come up with a new offer, allowing him to leave the Premier League side.
