David Moyes has met with Juventus' chief transfer negotiator over a potential move for duo Paul Pogba and Arturo Vidal, according to the Daily Mail.
The Manchester United manager met Beppe Marotta after Juventus’s game at Cagliari on Sunday and discussed the possibility of signing either, or both, of his top two targets.
After travelling to Cagliari with first-team coach Jimmy Lumsden to see Juventus win 4-1 and maintain their lead at the top of Serie A, Moyes outlined his transfer plans with the Turin club’s top administrator.
However, the Scot realised he will have his work cut out to sign one, or both, of the stars. It will be a task to entice Pogba back to Old Trafford and United will have to wait until the summer to capture Vidal.
Zinedine Zidane said Pogba’s departure from United 18 months ago was ‘the biggest mistake of Sir Alex Ferguson’s career’, but Moyes is clinging to the hope he can rectify it, despite the cost.
Paris Saint-Germain’s interest in Pogba and willingness to offer him a chance to play in his home country, is likely to push the asking price beyond £40m. He is understood to favour PSG but has not ruled out a second spell at Old Trafford.
For now, Juventus are adamant about hanging on to him and Marotta said: "From our point of view, we do not want to sell Pogba and, so far, we have closed the door to any possible buyer."
