The French international has been linked with a return to Old Trafford.
Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri is only likely to have added to speculation linking Paul Pogba with an imminent move away from the Turin club by saying that even he has a price on his head, in comments reported by Goal.
French international Pogba has been linked with numerous major recent clubs this season as his meteoric rise into one of the world’s finest midfield players has continued, with Real Madrid mentioned by the report in question and Manchester United also having been strongly linked in the press recently.
Pogba has been an Old Trafford player in the past, spending a period of time in the club’s youth system after joining from French outfit Le Havre, but he was not handed regular first team opportunities by former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson and chose to head to Turin on a free transfer.
This has proven to be a wise move by Pogba, who has become one of the finest midfielders in Serie A and one of the best young players in the world during his time at the Bianconeri – but Allegri has insisted that even a player such as Pogba has his price:
“Everything in life has a price, unfortunately. I don’t think it is a problem we need to consider right now. It is difficult to replace world class players, but it can be done, as football goes on.”
