Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has reportedly asked his agent, Mino Raiola, to help with a move back to Juventus this summer.
That is according to the Express, who claim the player is fed up with life at Old Trafford, despite only being back at the club since 2016, and is keen to return to Serie A.
Pogba’s relationship with manager Jose Mourinho could be better, so there’s a feeling from this story that the France international wants to jump before he’s pushed, but we’ve not got an impression from our sources that the boss wants to get rid of the former Juve man just yet.
Mourinho is in the market for another midfielder or two after losing Michael Carrick to retirement and, with the pending departure of Marouane Fellaini still hitting the headlines, he hardly wants to see another leave.
Given the Reds paid a huge amount of money to bring Pogba back to the club, we’re not going to let him leave without getting that amount and more in return – as Mourinho looks to build a side that will challenge rivals Manchester City more for the Premier League title.
Meanwhile, Pogba has revealed that he sees all Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Yaya Toure, Andreas Iniesta, Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and, surprisingly, former injury-prone Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby as having been ‘better’ than him as things stand:
