Juventus ready to offer midfield pair in swap deal for Man Utd £290,000 a-week star
Juventus ready to offer Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot to Manchester United in a bid to re-sign Paul Pogba during the summer transfer window, according to the reports.
The Red Devils are expected to offload French forward at the end of the current campaign after an injury-stricken season.
Tensions between French playmaker and the Red Devils have been building since the former Juve midfielder has expressed his desire to depart from Old Trafford, last summer. Mino Raiola has continued to push for a transfer and La Gazzetta dello Sport suggest Paul Pogba’s agent has now made contact with Serie A champions, Juventus over a return to Turin.
Pogba departed from the Red Devils to join Juventus back in 2012 before deciding to depart from the Italian side and making a return to Old Trafford back in 2016. Serie A champions have a plan in place to convince the 20-times English champions to sell and will offer two midfielders in a swap deal.
Ramsey and Rabiot only joined Serie A champions, last summer, however, have struggled to nail down regular sport in the starting XI.
The Red Devils were rumoured with midfield pair before they signed for Serie A champions and the Italian side believe the duo could be a vital in securing the services of France international playmaker. Juve’ offer will amount to £125m, including wages, and his agent Mino Raiola claimed his player is keen to return to Italian top-tier.
‘He’d like to return, as Italy is like a second home for him. I talk about many things with [Juventus chief Pavel] Nedved: yes, including Paul,’ he said after a recent Juventus game.
‘The cost of the operation, competition from Real Madrid, PSG and Bayern.
‘Paul wants to play at the best level but he can’t escape by Manchester United if they are in a difficult situation.’
The Red Devils are keen to cash in on Pogba, however, want at least £83m for their superstar.
Man Utd planning £75m bid for Premier League No.10 midfielder
Premier League giants Manchester United are reportedly preparing £75million bid for the transfer of Leicester City midfield star James Maddison.
Brandan Rogers key man looks one of the best in the Premier League in that position, and would surely be a great asset to this struggling the 20-times English champions.
It’s little wonder then that Don Balon claim that the Red Devils seem to be preparing to offer big money to secure the services of James Maddison this summer in what sounds like a big potential shake-up in the 20-times English champions squad.
Maddison exactly what the Red Devils need as a long-term replacement for Juan Mata and Jessie Lingard as both of them set to leave the club this summer, while Paul Pogba continues to be rumoured with a switch Real Madrid and Juventus.
Don Balon also rumour MUFC with an interest in Premier League club, Aston Villa star Jack Grealish, a similar player who could also be a perfect addition to the Red Devils.
The Red Devils also raided Leicester City for key defender Harry Maguire earlier last summer, so it remains to be seen if the Brandan Rogders side will be willing to let another of their most key players to sign for the Red Devils.
Player himself might be interested to remain with the Foxes as they are in the Champions League zone.

“I talk to Juventus and their vice-chairman Pavel Nedved about many things, including about Pogba and other players, as is only right for a big club. You need to get information, see what’s happening, put down a few hypotheses, dream a little,” Raiola told reporters.
The Serie A giants are reportedly preparing to offer both Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot to the Red Devils in the hope of coming to an agreement over the 2018 World Cup-winning midfielder.
