As clubs continue to acquire and release players in this transfer window, France world cup winner, Paul Pogba is in the news as he wants to return to Juventus. This, according to Sky Italia.

Concise News reports that The Bianconeri are closing in on the signing of Adrien Rabiot, who will become a free agent on June 30, but they are now attempting to work out how they can afford Pogba’s 15 million euro a year salary, as well as the 150m euros that his club, Manchester United are demanding.

The 26-year-old wants to leave The Theatre of Dreams and said on Sunday “it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else.”

According to Sky in Italy, Joao Cancelo, the Juventus right-back who is likely to leave the club this summer, could form part of the Pogba deal.

Real Madrid are also interested in signing the midfielder, who asked to leave United last summer too amid interest from Barcelona.
