Juventus have reportedly stepped up efforts to re-sign Manchester United’s superstar Paul Pogba.
According to ESPN, Juventus are unable to meet Man United’s asking price for Pogba, but attacking midfield duo Paulo Dybala (27) and Federico Bernardeschi (26) could temp the Red Devils.

“Paulo Dybala and Federico Bernardeschi are among the players being offered to Manchester United as Juventus look for ways to put together a deal to sign Paul,” ESPN reported.
“Juventus are keen to re-sign Pogba, after he left for United in a £89.3 million deal in 2016, following comments from agent Mino Raiola that the midfielder will not sign a new contract at Old Trafford.
“The contract will expire in 2022 — United have exercised their one-year extension option — when he will become a free agent. Rather than try to sign Pogba in January, Juventus are hoping to agree a deal with United next summer,” added the report.
Meanwhile, Paul and Man United will welcome the swaggering Leeds United to Old Trafford this weekend for an old English derby.
