EPL: Pirlo talks up Paul Pogba’s return to Juventus


As long as French international midfielder Paul Pogba remains at Man United, speculations of his move away from the club will not end with Tuttojuve reporting that Juventus boss Andrea Pirlo already dreaming of his return to the Italian Serie A.

The Italian manager took over the job as manager in Juventus after former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri was sacked on August 2020 and has begun a reformation of the team with the dream of having Paul Pogba also.

Paul Pogba left the Italian outfit for Man United in 2016 but he seems to have a link with Juventus that has always kept him on their wish list for the past seasons.

There have been controversial issues surrounding the World Cup winner at the Old Trafford which makes him get the bashing from the English media.

He is currently not getting the call for starting roles as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have considered him fit to start from the bench and that might be unsettling him already.

With Paul Pogba’s contract already extended until 2022, he might not be patient to see it out with the speculations that he will seek an exit from the team at the end of the season.

However, Paul Pogba will have to take a salary cut before he can move back to Juventus because of the financial situation in Turin which has affected the club.

Howbeit, Juventus will not be landing Paul Pogba cheaply with the interest coming from Spanish La Liga outfit, Real Madrid. Some even belief that he is more interested in a move to Spain than Italy.

He has continued to talk up the chances of a move to the La Liga by declaring his love for Real Madrid and manager Zinedine Zidane.
Meanwhile, Paul Pogba is being valued by Man United owners and selling him will not be an easy thing to do.
