Paul Pogba has told Manchester United that he wants to leave the club and return to Juventus, according to reports.
The France midfielder’s differences with Jose Mourinho are public knowledge and his agent Mino Raiola has also been vocal over Pogba’s treatment at Old Trafford.
Italian source Tuttosport claimed yesterday that Pogba is intrigued by the possibility of teaming up with Cristiano Ronaldo, and returning to Turin – the club he left to join United for £89million in 2016.
Now, the Sunday Express states that Pogba “has given the club notice that he is determined to leave when the next transfer window opens” in order to “allow them a few months to find a replacement”.
Pogba, who will face Juve in the Champions League after the two clubs were drawn together in Group H, would also not be cup-tied to United in the Champions League due to new UEFA rules.
The 25-year-old – who has been linked with a £100m move to Barcelona – hinted at his unhappiness after the opening weekend win over Leicester.
“If you’re not happy, you cannot give your best,” Pogba said.
“There are things I cannot say otherwise I will get fined.”
