Juventus have had their approach for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba rejected as the Italians try to re-sign the French World Cup winner this summer. Paul Pogba was formerly on the payroll of the Old Lady before he moved back to England to play for Manchester United. The rebuffed approach for Paul Pogba from Juventus was revealed by the Daily Mirror. It was revealed that Manchester United are keen on a swap deal that would see Paul Pogba leave the club but they were not happy with the player suggestion from Juventus.
It was revealed that Juventus offered Welshman Aaron Ramsey in a swap deal for Paul Pogba but it was turned down by the Red Devils, who have no interest in the ex-Arsenal midfielder. Manchester United had previously been interested in Aaron Ramsey but it seems like that ship has sailed. Juventus also offered Brazilian winger Douglas Costa whose presently on a season-long loan deal at Champions League holders Bayern Munich and the Old Lady met the same response of no interest from Manchester United. Just like Aaron Ramsey, the English club had previously been linked with a move for Douglas Costa.
Paul Pogba is not expected to sign a new contract at Manchester United and the expectation is that the Frenchman will leave the club this summer with a year remaining on his existing deal. Juventus are one of three clubs keen to sign Paul Pogba this summer when he leaves Manchester United. Paris Saint Germain (PSG) and Real Madrid are the other two clubs.
Paul Pogba was a teenager when he left Manchester United to join Juventus on a free transfer in 2012. The Italian Serie A champions had to pay a compensation fee for the Manchester United Academy graduate. He spent four years at Juventus before returning to Manchester United.
