…As United offer French star £500,000 weekly
Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici is reportedly preparing a bid of over €100m for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.
According to Calciomercato.it, the Bianconeri have made Pogba’s return to Turin their main transfer goal of the summer, although they face stern competition from Real Madrid.
The 26-year-old left the Italian Champions for Old Trafford in 2016 for €105m and the midfielder scored 31 times in 142 games during his spell in England.
“Now could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else,” confessed Pogba at the weekend.
However, yesterday the Red Devils claimed that they had no intention of selling the Frenchman, with the Evening Standard reporting that chairman Ed Woodward is determined to hold on to the World Cup winner.
With reports Manchester United are allegedly prepared to offer Paul Pogba a new long-term contract worth £500,000 per week, despite the midfielder revealing that he is ready for a new challenge.
After a mixed campaign at Old Trafford, there has been frequent speculation regarding the future of the 26-year-old as Real Madrid continue to be linked with an approach.
Pogba – said to be valued in the region of £150m – suggested on Sunday that he was keen to leave Old Trafford before the start of next season.
However, the Daily Mail claims that United are ready to respond with an offer which would see the France international receive an extra £200,000 per week.
