Italy legend drops major hint over possible Juventus return for Pogba

Oli Fisher

Former Italy midfielder Andrea Pirlo has confirmed that Paul Pogba could return to Juventus, hinting that the Serie A giants are interested.

Pogba has been repeatedly linked with an Old Trafford exit after becoming increasingly distant with Jose Mourinho at United, and apparently only wants to move to Barcelona or his former club Juventus.

When asked about a possible return to Turin for Pogba, Pirlo told Tuttosport: “It would not surprise me because Juventus is looking for the best and if one player goes away it is not said that they cannot return.”

Meanwhile, the former AC Milan midfielder also commented on the struggles of Argentine forward Paulo Dybala, who has seen his opportunities limited somewhat by the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo.

“When you do not play, it means that you have to do something more.

“The qualities of Dybala are not in question. To become a fundamental player for Juventus he must find something inside him, he must do it first of all for himself.”

Meanwhile, Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure has labelled Pogba – a player he played with as a junior – a “show-off”.
