He noted that Juventus are currently working hard to return as the best in Europe, hence will leave the room open for star players who left to return back.

Pirlo said now that the new stadium by the Italian giants has been completed, all that is needed is to invest in players who will return the club to glory days.

However, Barcelona has been mentioned as a possible destination for Pogba who is reportedly keen to stay out of Mourinho’s reach.
