Juventus close to a deal to sign another superstar

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is nearing a return to former side Juventus, according to a report in France.

The France international amassed 34 goals from 178 appearances for the Old Lady before returning to Old Trafford in 2016, but Pogba has been persistently linked with a move away from Manchester in recent times.

The midfielder has only chalked up eight appearances across all competitions during an injury-hit 2019-20 campaign, and Juventus are reportedly set to welcome Pogba back to Turin this summer.

According to French outlet L’Equipe, Juve are putting together the finishing touches on a deal for Pogba – although United will demand a fee in the region of £72m.

With the current uncertainty surrounding big-money transfers in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, Juventus will supposedly throw in Adrien Rabiot as part of a deal.

A recent report claimed that Maurizio Sarri’s side are keen to offload Rabiot after the relationship between the two parties allegedly deteriorated.
