EPL: How Pirlo’s appointment has caused tension in Man United’s camp


Man United will now have to work harder to keep French midfielder Paul Pogba at the club following the appointment of Andrea Pirlo as the head coach of Juventus.

The Red Devils had earlier believed that the World Cup winner is now happy at the Old Trafford, especially with his recent form but that can change in a twinkle of an eye with Pirlo’s influence at Juventus.

The end is yet to be heard of Juventus’ interest in their former player, Paul Pogba and the latest is being linked with the sack of former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri and the appointment of Andrea Pirlo.

It is reported that Andrea Pirlo have great impact on Paul Pogba and has been backed to make a move for him which could force the player to consider leaving the Old Trafford this summer window.

Andrea Pirlo is also reported to begin his rebuilding of Juventus from the midfield and will bring in new faces at the midfield to help carry out his formations.

However, Man United will do all it takes to keep Paul Pogba as they are already planning to hand him a new contract deal which means he will no longer be available for a return to the Serie A outfit.
