Paul Pogba has flourished since completing his transfer from Manchester United to Juventus, thus establishing himself among the elite midfielders in the European game. Given his consistent high level of performance, the France international continues to be linked with a move away from Turin.
Real Madrid have been credited with interest in Pogba, as have Paris Saint-Germain, while bids of €60 million have been mentioned. There have also been links with Manchester City and Chelsea, while Manchester United are also reported to be keen on their former charge. It’s safe to say that Pogba is in demand.
Juventus will no doubt be aware that the summer transfer of this year will likely result in some enquiries at least with regards to Pogba, particularly if their prized asset is able to produce a star turn at the World Cup.
Bianconeri icon Gianluigi Buffon clearly realises this, but the Italian goalkeeper trusts the Juventus board to make the right decision were a significant offer to come in for Pogba when the transfer window opens once more.
“In a difficult economic situation like this, you have to take a lot of things into consideration if a big offer comes in [for Pogba],” Buffon told Sky Italia.
"But I would like to stress that the directors and the president have always made the right choices and will do the same in this case."
Pogba left Manchester United for Juventus almost two years ago, with his departure from Old Trafford hastened by a falling out with manager Sir Alex Ferguson. The 21-year-old has since made 77 appearances for Juve, scoring 13 times and winning two Serie A titles, the second of which is a formality.
