Paul Pogba: Midfielder centre of transfer tug-of-war

Massimiliano Allegri believes the allure of Champions League football could result in Paul Pogba rejecting Manchester United and remaining at Juventus.

United continue to be linked with a £100million move for Pogba, who left Old Trafford to join Juventus on a free transfer in 2012, with reports suggesting a deal could be completed by the end of the month.

But with United unable to offer the 23-year-old the opportunity to play in the Champions League, Juve manager Allegri hopes the midfielder will stay in Turin.

“Anyone who has the opportunity to leave Juventus has to consider things very carefully, because right now Juve are among the top four European clubs,” Allegri told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“This is not a selling club that just lets its players go. Pogba belongs to Juve and he too will want to win another Scudetto and hopefully the Champions League.”

Since leaving United, Pogba has won four-consecutive Serie A title, two Coppa Italias, and also played in the 2015 Champions League final, where Juventus were beaten by Barcelona.
