Paul Pogba promises to be the subject of the biggest transfer saga of the summer.
The Frenchman seems to be the missing piece in Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United jigsaw and has been linked with a world-record £100m move back to Old Trafford, as Sky Sports reports.
Spanish giants Real Madrid were believed to have held a keen interest in the 23-year-old Juventus midfielder, but have bowed out of the race because of financial reasons, according to Sky Sports.
That seems to have left the door open for the Red Devils to re-sign a player they let go for free in 2013, but Pogba was non-commital when asked what he would do if Mourinho gave him a call.
“My response would be ‘I don’t know.’ I don’t know when,” he told ESPN. “We will see. For the moment, I am here [Juventus] and I am happy here. I don’t know where I want to go.”
Pogba was in Los Angeles for the 2016 ESPY awards (Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly Award), where he also described United to ESPN broadcasters as “my first club, my first family.”
The Euro 2016 star left United for Turin four years ago and has since established himself as one of the most dominant midfielders in the world, helping Juventus to four successive Serie A titles.
