Paul Pogba is really close to joining Juventus for free this summer, only few details left to seal the deal, sources have confirmed to Max Statman.
The 29 years old midfielder will leave Manchester United this summer for free after his contract with the club runs out this summer, and a return in Turin is no longer a dream.
There has already been a meeting between Paul Pogba’s representatives and Juventus management, but both sides are set to meet again soon with the Bianconeri hope to complete the deal as soon as possible.
After finishing last season without winning a single trophy, Max Allegri and Juventus seek to add some experienced players this summer in the view of next season. Juventus – who dominated Italy in Allegri’s first spell at the club – hope to bounce back again next season.
The Bianconeri are offering Paul Pogba a contract until 2025, worth 8 million euros net per year plus bonuses.
Despite Manchester United and PSG previously offering more, the player is more tempted by the possibility of playing in a Bianconeri shirt again and is ready to reduce his salary to make that happen.
We also understand, one of Juventus main rivals for the Frenchmen’s signing, Paris Saint-Germain are no longer interested in signing Paul Pogba.
Leonardo – former Paris Saint-Germain’s sporting director – was the one who wanted Paul Pogba but since he was fired by the French champions, they’re no longer interested in signing the French midfield.
Not only Paris Saint Germain, Manchester City were also looking at Paul Pogba a few weeks ago but were told by his entourage that the player is not interested in continuing in England.
Pogback is on the verge of completion after six years in Manchester.
