Pogba wants Juventus return

Paul Pogba wants to return to Juventus, reports Tuttosport, with the Manchester United star unhappy with his role under Jose Mourinho.

The France midfielder has been unable to replicate his form for the Bianconeri on a regular basis at Old Trafford after rejoining the Red Devils for £89 million in 2016.

Pogba has three years remaining on his contract, meaning it will be difficult for the Italian champions to convince United to sell when they are looking to strengthen in order to close the gap on rivals Manchester City.

But agent Mino Raiola will now negotiate with United concerning Pogba’s salary.

Man United and PSG battle for Alex Sandro

Manchester United have opened talks to sign Juventus star Alex Sandro to solve their long-standing left-back problem, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

Juve will also consider renewing Alex Sandro’s contract, but may feel the time is right to cash in on the 27-year-old former Porto star after a disappointing season.
