Manchester United want Juventus star Matthijs de Ligt and cash in exchange for Paul Pogba


Manchester United are willing to allow Paul
Pogba to join Juventus this summer – provided the Italians offer Matthijs de Ligt and money
in exchange for the Frenchman. Pogba, 27, is keen on leaving Old Trafford
after being denied a move to Real Madrid last summer when his agent, Mino Raiola, made clear
that the World Cup winner wanted out. Madrid have since cooled their interest as
they’re struggling to finance a deal for Pogba, who’s valued at £120m and commands
wages of close to £300,000-a-week. Juventus have similar reservations but United
are in a strong negotiating position and the Daily Star claim the Red Devils will only
accept a deal that includes de Ligt. The defender was wanted by United last summer
but he opted for a move to Turin instead. However, he’s suffered a mixed campaign
and was dropped at the turn of the year for Turkish defender Merih Demiral. United, though, remain interested and they’d
accept a deal that included the Dutchman as well as a fee on top. With de Ligt valued at around £85m, Juventus
would likely need to pay something in the region of £20-30m on top to see Pogba return
to Italy.

  1. More like Phil Jones standard. Would be surprised if Ole get him. Should be looking at someone who could help win the title and challenge for champion league.
