A decisive meeting between Paul Pogba and Juventus is being held to determine the terms of a possible transfer back to Turin. The agents of the player are in negotiations with the club while only Paris Saint-Germain are also left in the race, reports Fabrizio Romano.
Paul Pogba and Juventus Set for Potential Reunion
French Midfielder Leaving Manchester United
Paul Pogba already played his last game in a Manchester United shirt. Now the midfielder is in search of a new club and Juventus will try to bring him back to Turin. Paul Pogba joined Juventus on a free transfer in 2012, ironically from Manchester United. The Frenchman spent four years and won everything in Italy. He became Serie A champion in all four seasons, adding to that twice the Coppa Italia and the Supercoppa Italiana. Then he returned to Manchester in a huge £89 million deal, but things didn’t work out as expected.
Now the story may repeat with Paul Pogba leaving Manchester United as a free agent and joining Juventus.
Another report from the transfer specialist Nicolo Schira suggests that Juventus are ready to put Paul Pogba at the centre of their project. The number 10 shirt will be given to the Frenchman with a huge salary of €8 million per year. The player may earn up to €10 million with certain bonuses in the contract.
Paris Saint-Germain Still in the Race
Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain are still pushing to sign the midfielder. The club are offering a salary of €12 million, even better than the proposal from Juventus. Paul Pogba currently earns €17 million in England and already accepted that he would have to lower his demands.
However, it seems that the salary is not a priority for the player. Both reports confirm that Paul Pogba already rejected one of the richest clubs in the world. Manchester City were interested in the midfielder’s signature, but the Frenchman ruled out the possibility of signing for his current club’s city rivals.
