Mercato: Pogba, Juve have an ace up their sleeve

At the end of the Manchester United contract, which he is leaving this summer, Paul Pogba will be spoiled for choice when it comes to coming back. Juventus, his former club, have already offered him a three-year deal, albeit with a lower salary offer than the competition.

Will Pogba return to Turin six years after his exit?

It’s the right thing this time. Since his return to Manchester United in 2016, Paul Pogba has often been announced as a departure but he has never acted.

Now at the end of the contract and having turned down all his management’s renewal offers, it would take an incredible turnaround to see him continue the adventure with the Red Devils. So it’s no longer a secret for anyone: the midfielder will (finally) go 99.9%, but where?

Juve offers little financially, but a lot in terms of sport

A world champion in his prime (29 years old) is obviously very popular. Ask any club in the world if they want Pogba in their squad and they’ll probably say yes. Even more so when he has seen the phenomenon at work in the past, as at Juventus, where the Habs shone between 2012 and 2016 before returning to the Premier League. Aiming to get back up to speed quickly, the Old Lady has made the Le Havre-trained player a priority.

He was offered a three-year contract with an annual salary of 8 million euros (+ 2 million euros in bonuses). Enough to convince him? As explained by the very well-informed Gianluca Di Marzio, this is the lowest offer his agents have been offered since January 1st. Competitors, including Paris Saint-Germain, all offered more La Pioche. But Juve have an ace up their sleeve: the sports project set to revolve around the French midfielder.

Competition Madrid, indecisiveness Paris

At Real Madrid, who have haunted him for many years, and at Paris Saint-Germain, with their dressing room full of egos, it would be impossible to make the same proposal to Pogba. And following his lucrative return to England, the Frenchman could therefore be guided by decisions more focused on the round ball. but He hasn’t made a final decision yet currently, explains our colleague who works in particular with Sky Sport Italia.

According to Di Marzio, the last word will remain with the player. And not their representatives, as may have been the case in the past. So good news for Juventus, because they will be able to convince him thanks to the sporting project, and not financially. Other positive aspects? Madrid, the competition rages in the middle and could spook many, while rumors have swirled that PSG president Nasser Al-Khelafi isn’t as keen on signing Pogba as his sporting director Leonardo. The old lady knows what to do.
