Reading between the lines of Juve’s Falcao interest.
With recent speculation that Juventus are chasing the signing of Manchester United loanee Radamel Falcao next summer as he looks unlikely to make his move to Old Trafford permanent, it may be that the Red Devils will actually find one of their top targets is suddenly available.

Manchester United transfer news
The Colombian international, signed by United on a temporary deal from AS Monaco, is worth around £46m and is on wages of £300,000 per week – somewhat out of Juventus’ current price range.
However, with reports elsewhere recently suggesting that French midfield star Paul Pogba’s value in the transfer market has shot up to around 90 million euros (just over £70m), then a bid for Falcao would surely suggest that the Italian giants are ready to cash in on the immensely gifted 21-year-old.
Pogba left United earlier in his career after not being given a chance in their first team, and has proven himself as a potentially world class performer in Serie A, and has been linked with a return to United since then.
The likes of Chelsea and Manchester City have also shown an interest in the player, but there may be some potential here for United to come to an agreement over Falcao and Pogba.
