Sir Alex Ferguson is said to be keen to keep hold of Paul Pogba and is therefore looking to offer the French teenager more first team action, indeed the former Le Havre man may be available for Man United’s match against Ajax this evening. Juventus however are ready to offer the midfielder a long term contract as they look to woo the youngster away to Turin.
Antonio Conte has done a fine job at the Serie A side, helping them erase the memory of two very lean seasons as they continue to make a concerted push for the title, having gone the entire league season unbeaten.
Pogba made his Premier League debut in January and having seen Ravel Morrison sold to West Ham after he too made it clear he wanted first team football, Ferguson will not want to suffer a similar fate with the young rangy midfielder who joined the Old Trafford club in controversial circumstances back in 2009 when Le Havre reported the Premier League side to FIFA over their alleged ‘tapping-up’ or the starlet, a charge that was later dropped.
Having seen the likes of Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverley receive a more prominent role in the Man United first team, Pogba probably feels he deserves more of a chance to prove himself but interest from Juventus may well tempt the French Under 19 international into considering his options.
