Juventus reportedly want Paul Pogba back so they can play him alongside Aaron Ramsey.
Aaron Ramsey is set to move to Turin in the summer on a free transfer that will net his agent €9m while Arsenal get nothing.
The deal is agreed, everything is a go and all the talk, light as it is, of Arsenal changing their mind and offering the Welshman a new deal is nothing more than fanciful thinking from a handful of people.
Quite how serious the report that Juventus want Paul Pogba back to play alongside Rambo is hard to gauge.
I first spotted it in the S*n and while they have their moment when it comes to breaking news that is worth reading, their track record of sh*t-stirring is more extensive so it’s hard to know if this is true or simply them trying to unsettle the Frenchman.
Pogba’s fortunes have taken an upturn since Jose Mourinho and his poison left the club and it’s hard to see United letting him leave, or Juventus paying the fee it would take to land him.
United paid £94.5m for him back in 2016 and he still has two-and-a-half years left on his current deal.
Juventus did pay £105.3m for Ronaldo, but his commercial appeal is like no other footballer.
After that, they paid £81m for Gonzalo Higuain from Napoli.
Their third highest fee is the £47.6m they paid for Gianluigi Buffon in 2001.
