Manchester United could allow €180m worth of talent to leave Old Trafford in the next week, while Tottenham appear to have missed out on re-signing a former star, according to Thursday’s European papers.
MAN UTD SET TO ALLOW €180M DUO DEPART
Paul Pogba has agreed to re-join Juventus this summer, according to reports in Italy.
The midfielder reminded the world of his talents this summer as France enjoyed success in the World Cup, with Pogba casting aside his struggles under Jose Mourinho to find consistent form at Manchester United.
The player had been strongly linked with Barcelona in recent days – but Tuttosport claims Pogba wants a return to Juventus ahead of any other transfer. The Italian outlet even goes as far to say that personal terms over a possible return have already been agreed.
However, there remains a stumbling block, with Juventus only able to afford the signing of Pogba if they can offload Miralem Pjanic first. The Bosnian is rated in the €100m bracket and has been strongly linked with Manchester City this summer.
However, it’s claimed Chelsea now look the most likely suitors, with Maurizio Sarri a confirmed fan, and his move to Stamford Bridge holding the key to Pogba’s own €100m departure.
One man who looks nearer to the Old Trafford exit door, however, is Anthony Martial. The player has irked Mourinho with his attitude of late and reports in Spain now claim he is a target for Real Madrid.
OK Diario claims the Frenchman has emerged as Julen Lopetegui’s No 1 target to replace Cristiano Ronaldo this summer, with a fee of €80m being reported.
