Manchester United could lose Radamel Falcao once his loan deal expires at the end of the season if Paul Pogba completes a stunning move back to Old Trafford this summer.
A report from Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport - and brought to our attention by the Manchester Evening News - claims Juventus will embark on a huge spending spree if they lose France international Pogba to the Red Devils.
But high on their list of potential star replacements - although he doesn’t play in the same position as Pogba - is Colombia international Falcao, who is currently on a season-long loan at Old Trafford from AS Monaco.
United yet to make Falcao decision
Manchester United are yet to strike an agreement with Monaco for the permanent signing of Falcao, but could be dissuaded from completing a deal for the striker if it increases their chances of landing Pogba, who left Old Trafford in 2012.
The French central midfielder could cost in excess of £70 million to re-sign, meaning Manchester United would need to smash their current transfer record - which currently stands at £59.7 million, for Argentina international Angel di Maria - to secure their former player’s services.
Pogba still 'loves' United
Pogba has established his reputation as one of the world’s best young midfielders during his two-and-a-half years away from Old Trafford - but the man who admits he still loves Manchester United may feel he has unfinished business in the Premier League.
