Juventus’ director calls potential Pogba return ‘wonderful’

Paul Pogba has been linked with a return to Italy in order to play for Juventus after being unhappy under Jose Mourinho’s playing style. Juve’s directors are pretty open with allowing him to return.

Manchester United signed Paul Pogba from Juventus on a world record transfer fee of 89 million pounds back in 2016. The Red Devils signed the France international after a strong Euro 2016 and amid a lot of interest in the past. However, two years into his second tenure at the Old Trafford, things are not really turning out well for him.

Though he is one of their highest paid players and an indispensable player in the team, Paul Pogba feels that Jose Mourinho has been playing him in an impeded role that prevents him from giving his best by going forward. In addition to that, he has reportedly fallen out with the manager as well and was linked with a move to Barcelona and Juventus in the summer.

Juventus’ legendary former player and current director Pavel Nedved has now admitted that everyone based in Turin would love to see the 25 year old return sometime. Nedved told Sky Sport Italia: “I think Pogba is one of the best players in the world, so it’d be wonderful, but he’s at Manchester and therefore talking about it is futile. We’re alert on the transfer market, but January is a long way away.”

Italian reports are also claiming that while a transfer in January could be difficult to formulate, one in the next summer may go through and Paul Pogba’s value can go on to fall by that time. Some experts are also claiming that the French midfielder’s transfer worth will be of just 62 million pounds next summer but Man United will demand more for sure.

Author’s Take

The Red Devils should not let Paul Pogba leave at any cost simply because he is their future. While he has signalled at being unhappy under Jose Mourinho, he might flourish under an attacking minded manager should the 55-year-old boss get sacked. However, a Juventus return will be magnificent for the midfielder.
