Miralem Pjanic explains how Juventus fans would react to re-signing Paul Pogba


Few clubs are enjoying such dominance over their domestic competition as Juventus in Serie A.

The Italian giants boast an unblemished record in league action this season, save for a 1-1 draw at home to Genoa during October.

Massimiliano Allegri’s leaders have put eight points between themselves and their closest challengers Napoli after 15 matches - a gap only bettered by Paris Saint-Germain across the big five European leagues.

There’s no question Juve are already considered deserved favourites to claim their eighth consecutive Scudetto, but their ambition spans beyond Italy.

Midfielder Miralem Pjanic told Italian outlet Rai Sport, via Goal, he wants the Old Lady to complete a clean sweep.

“My dream is to win the Champions League and we’ll do everything we can to do it,” he said.

“The treble is a dream and an objective for us.

“When I arrived the president showed me a picture taken after Juventus’ fifth successive Scudetto. He told me we should have done more. We did it but it’s not over now.”

Pjanic and the rest of the Juventus squad have relished playing alongside Cristiano Ronaldo following his £99 million transfer from Real Madrid.

While it’s not solely due to the arrival of his four-time Champions League winning colleague, the Bosnian midfielder believes Juve have never been more formidable.

“Our team is very strong, we are working to improve,” he said.

“Allegri knows exactly how to manage the team and which players should be rotated.

“Cristiano is a plus for us. I think this is the best Juventus side in the history of the club.”


With that being said, Pjanic is hoping his superiors continue investing in bolstering the squad.

Paul Pogba has long been viewed as the next potential marquee signing amid his reportedly unfavourable situation at Manchester United.

The Frenchman has looked a shadow of the player he became during his first spell in Turin and a talk of return is refusing to die down.

However, depending on how badly Pogba’s Premier League struggles have rattled his confidence, would the Juve faithful want him back?

Well, Pjanic has no doubts whatsoever.

“It’s the dream of our fans,” he said.

“The club has signed some amazing players and are thinking of improving the team even more. He would be welcome again here.”

Pogba surely wouldn’t attract anything close to the fee United paid for him in August 2016, though his current employers’ likely reluctance to sell would influence their asking price.
