According to TuttoSport (via Sky Sports ), Juventus are set to win the race for Paul Pogba’s signature ahead of Barcelona, who were credited with an interest for the Frenchman’s services during the summer transfer window.
The Old Lady’s Sporting Director Fabio Paratici is looking at the prospect of having Paul Pogba and Cristiano Ronaldo play together before the end of the ongoing season.
The Scudetto Champions have been longing for a Champions League trophy for more than five seasons but they are yet to achieve their dream.
However, they believe bringing in top players to their team will help their manager Massimiliano Allegri lift the most-anticipated glory by the end of this season.
Should they eventually capture the 25-year-old playmaker in January, Juventus will surely be in Champions League title contenders due to the presence of world-class players including Dybala, Douglas Costa, Ronaldo, Mandzukic.
Meanwhile, Manchester United fans have frowned at the latest rumours over Pogba’s future and they took to Twitter to advised Mourinho to sell the player ‘who caused so much division in the dressing room’
Below are some of the tweets from United’s die-hard fans:
Sebastian admits the £81m-rated midfielder is free to go, if that’s what he wants, because no one is begging him to stay.
As for Michael, selling the player is the best option for Mourinho because Pogba seems tired of playing for the team.
Another fan wants the deal to be done and dusted as soon as TODAY — as long as Juventus are ready to pay £150m for his signature— because he’s tired of the Pogba’s attitude.
