Manchester United could target summer move for £40m star

Published Add your comment

Manchester United could revive a potential deal for one of world football's most highly-rated starlets this summer, reports suggest. 

According to the Manchester Evening News, the Premier League champions have had their hopes of re-signing Paul Pogba during the current transfer window ended but could look to revisit that move after the end of the season.

20-year-old Pogba left Manchester United under somewhat of a cloud during the summer of 2012. Although the Frenchman was evidently well-regarded at Old Trafford, he appeared somewhat frustrated by a lack of consistent first-team opportunity and instead opted to join Juventus.

The midfielder has gone from strength-to-strength in Turin, becoming a vital part of Antonio Conte's side and netting several truly spectacular goals as Juventus have dominated Serie A.

Manchester United were linked with a sensational swoop worth an eye-watering £40 million for Pogba this month, but reports have suggested that Juventus are - understandably - reluctant to sell the player and that Pogba himself, would, in the event that his current employers do move him on, prefer a move to Paris Saint-Germain over a move back to United.

Indeed, it appears as if the French champions - who certainly have not been afraid to splash the cash on high-quality reinforcements in recent times - could pose a significant hurdle to any hopes Manchester United have of re-signing Pogba in the future.
