Euro Paper Talk: Juventus offer up two names to sweeten Pogba deal

Juventus have offered up two stars in a potential swap deal for Man Utd star Paul Pogba, while Tottenham are showing interest in a Nigerian forward, according to Friday’s European papers.



Juventus are reportedly ready to offer Paulo Dybala or Douglas Costa to sweeten any deal to sign Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

The France star remains a major target for Juve, although the Italian giants also face stiff competition from Real Madrid for the 26-year-old.

For their part, it would seem that United are keen to keep hold of the player – with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitting on Friday that he expects the former Turin favourite to still be at Old Trafford next season.

However, Tuttosport claims that while Real are willing to offer Gareth Bale in any deal for Pogba, Juve are tempting United with a choice of Dybala and Costa – with the futures of both players still undecided in Italy.

United have been strongly linked with both players in the past, with perhaps Costa making more sense – given his ability to fill a need for United in an attacking wide role.

Dybala also remains a possibility, particularly given the latest reports that Barcelona have stepped up their efforts to try and sign Marcus Rashford for £100m.
