The Juventus bet to regain a player who left a huge mark on the club: the French Paul Pogba. Every time the European passbook is opened, the name of the 27-year-old midfielder rings out again in Turin and everything would indicate that the leaders of Vecchia Signora would be willing to make a significant offer to Manchester United to get him back.
As it transpired in the last hours, the Argentine Paulo Dybala would be one of the players that Juventus would be willing to give up to the English team to seal the return of Pogba. The other footballer who would enter the operation would be Federico Bernardeschi.
In a European market that was seriously hit by the economic losses caused by the coronavirus pandemic, player exchanges appear to be the optimal way to secure reinforcements. This would be the strategy that Juve would apply only in mid-2021 to add the French.
It is necessary to highlight that the versions indicate that the French midfielder has already asked his agent to leave United on numerous occasions. In this context, he would not look down on returning to the place where he established himself as one of the great midfielders in European football. Pogba arrived at Juventus in mid-2012 and played for four years at Calcio, where he won almost all the championships he has in his sports career. He celebrated nine titles, including four in Serie A. In fact, there he was a partner of the Argentine attacker.
Although negotiations have been going on in recent months, there is still no confirmation on Dybala’s contract renewal with Juve. The current relationship expires in June 2022 and the talks aimed to extend it until 2025. In fact, there was even talk that La Joya would receive a significant salary increase that would make him the second-best plague on the team, behind the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo. At the moment, the signature has not occurred.
The exchange with Pogba would also be a great opportunity for the novel between Dybala and Manchester United to have a happy ending. Since 2018, the English media have frequently published information about the interest of the Red Devils in taking over the services of the Cordovan, something that until now could not be achieved. With French as a valuable bargaining chip, the story this time could have a different ending.
