Juventus’ ‘dream’ to bring Manchester United’s Paul Pogba back to Serie A could be boosted by Massimiliano Allegri’s return as head coach, reports say.
The 53-year-old Italian tactician returned last week after his fellow countryman Andrea Pirlo was sacked by the Old Lady.
He paid the price after I BIanconeri lost their Serie A crown to Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan and just about scraped into the top four.
Fan-favourite Massimiliano won five straight league titles in Turin and took his team to two Champions League finals.
Allegri managed Paul before he left for the Red Devils in 2016 and the French star has just a year remaining on his Old Trafford contract.
CalcioMercato in Italy claim that Juventus have a host of transfer targets, but bringing Paul back would be ‘the real dream’.
Other summer targets listed in the report are Turkish star Hakan Calhanoglu, Manuel Locatelli from Sassuolo or Udinese’s Rodrigo De Paul.
Elsewhere, Manchester United are allegedly ready to use David de Gea as a makeweight in any offer for Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak.
In spite of making 36 appearances for United across all competitions this season, David is now viewed as the second choice behind Dean Henderson.
