Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici has acknowledged that the club have discussed the prospect of re-signing Paul Pogba from Manchester United. The France international parted ways with the Bianconeri to re-join the Red Devils during the summer of 2016 but he has since endured a mixed run where he has come for plenty of criticism.

Amidst this, there has already been the talk of him pursuing a fresh challenge away from Old Trafford and when asked about the prospect of Juventus re-signing him, Paratici told TMW: “Is the return of Pogba possible? We have already discussed this many times. He’s a great player we’ve had before and are fond of, but now he plays for Manchester United. We are exploring the market, the president and Pavel Nedved, with the help of the coach (Massimiliano) Allegri. To improve the team we are always careful. We still have great players and we enjoy them. It will not be easy to always have so many strong ones.”
