Manchester United transfer news: Juventus ‘not giving up’ on signing Paul Pogba


0

Juventus are still hoping to sign Manchester United star Paul Pogba, reports claim.

The midfielder, who admitted ‘it could be time for a new challenge’ in June, has been heavily linked with Real Madrid and Juve throughout the summer.

The Express claim Juventus are attempting to raise funds for £150million-rated Pogba before the Italian transfer window closes on September 2.

The Serie A champions have been trying to offload Mario Mandzukic and Paulo Dybala, who was close to joining Manchester United and Tottenham earlier this month.

However, both clubs pulled out of a deal due to Dybala’s excessive wage demands.

United also chased Mandzukic as a late replacement for Romelu Lukaku, who joined Inter Milan for £72million, but a move never materialised.

Pogba is likely to start in the Red Devils’ Premier League opener against Chelsea on Sunday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are short in midfield following Ander Herrera’s departure to Paris Saint-Germain.

And United legend Ryan Giggs believes a potential Pogba exit would leave an even bigger void in the club’s midfield.

He said: “I think the fans are split. Some fans say ‘let him go’ and some recognise the quality he has got and if he does go there will be a big void.

“If you get rid of all the players and you haven’t got quality to replace them, then that is difficult as well. So it is a tough job for Ole, that balancing act.

“Ronaldo said he wanted to go and then did an extra year. Whether that is going to happen or not, I don’t know.

“But if Pogba goes now, there will be a massive void in midfield where I think we are already short.”
