Juventus are targeting a January loan swoop for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, according to the latest reports.
Pogba has been incessantly mentioned with a return to Turin in recent transfer markets with Mino Raiola increasing speculation about his future with a statement last week stating his time at United is ‘over’.
Mino touted a return to Italy as a potential destination for his client and urged United to allow the player to leave, potentially opening the door to an exit in the winter transfer market.
Juventus remain keen on the World Cup winner but could be financially constrained. As a result, The Mirror claim Andrea Pirlo is aiming to land Pogba on loan in January with an obligation to buy next summer’s transfer window.
United activated the extension clause in Pogba’s deal earlier this year meaning his current deal will expire in June 2022.
Elsewhere, reports in Italy claim United snubbed an offer from Juventus for Paul earlier this year.
United allegedly demanded €100 million for the midfielder, a sum Juventus were unable to pay because of their financial situation.
Calciomercato claim Andrea was desperate to reunite with his ex-teammate and the Serie A giants offered a swap deal to the 20-times English champions in order to tempt them into a sale.
The Italian outlet claim the Old Lady offered United both Douglas Costa and Miralem Pjanic in exchange for the France international but United swiftly rejected their advances.
Miralem eventually joined Barcelona while Douglas moved back to Bayern Munich on a season-long loan.
