Juventus are reportedly preparing for the next transfer period to land a marquee signing to bolster their midfield in 2019, with three names said to be on their radar.
The Bianconeri have won seven consecutive Serie A titles prior to this season, so attracting big names shouldn’t be an issue, especially having players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala already in the squad to act as pull factors.
I mean, there are not many players in world football who would turn down the opportunity to play for a successful team like Juventus or to play alongside Ronaldo.
Juventus are on course to have another go at the Champions League this season and after adding Ronaldo to their already strong squad, it should be their main objective for 2019. That would see the former Manchester United winger win his fourth consecutive Champions League.
However, the Turin giants are seemingly not content yet as Tuttosport report that the midfield is still set to be addressed with three names being put forward. Those include Adrien Rabiot, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Paul Pogba.
This comes after Claudio Marchisio departed last week, leaving a void in the Juventus midfield.
A return to Juventus may appeal to Pogba, who has struggled to show consistency since leaving Italy in 2016 and fans have grown tired of his attitude to date. The Frenchman’s agent, Mino Raiola, is hardly helping matters either.
Pogba sparked speculation over his future with comments made earlier this month after suggesting that he wasn’t entirely happy at Old Trafford, as per The Guardian, and so it remains to be seen whether or not he’ll seek a transfer from the Premier League club.
La Liga champions Barcelona are also said to be interested, as per Goal, though Stretty News understands Pogba is going nowhere this month.
