Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has made it clear to the club that he wants to re-sign Paul Pogba, who has entered the final year of his contract at Manchester United.
Pogba spent four successful years at Juventus earlier in his career after leaving Old Trafford the first time, with the final two of those spent working under Allegri. The Frenchman was very settled in Turin but an £89m transfer saw him return to Manchester to address unfinished some business there.
Five years on and Pogba’s second spell at United has been a mixed bag. He has often been the club’s best player during that time, but the success he would have hoped for has not yet come.
The 28-year-old underlined his status as one of the world’s best midfielders at Euro 2020, despite France’s shock early exit. He has been approached by United officials to open new talks about a new contract and his agent, Mino Raiola, has engaged with the club.
