Report: United could succumb to Pogba’s Juventus wish
Emerging report indicates that Manchester United might succumb to the wish of French midfielder Paul Pogba by allowing him to return to the Italian giants Juventus.
The World Cup winner had pushed for a return to his former side in Turin in the last summer according to reports but that did not work out with the Old Trafford side reluctant to let him leave.
The slow start of the season, as well as the outburst Pogba had with manager Jose Mourinho, was another reason he had to leave again as he was reported to have approached the club’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, informing him of his desire to leave the club he was told he will not be leaving.
However, the wish by the Red Devils to have Pogba stay might not be any more if emerging reports are anything to go by as Sky Sports Italia expert Gianluca Di Marzio claims United are now ready to let him leave but will request for a swap deal for another player.
United are demanding Miralem Pjanic as the player they need in exchange for Pogba in order to have him leave the club.
However, it is left to Juventus to decide if they will be willing to do the business or let the Frenchman remain at the Old Trafford.
