According to the source, Juventus are threatening to pull the plug, even though they could make a killing on the deal. Despite rumours of a £77m transfer, the Italians are having none of it, and insist Pogba is staying put as they “don’t need to sell him.”
Sir Alex Ferguson allowed Pogba to leave for nothing two and a half years ago, after growing frustrated with his attitude and lack of respect toward the Old Trafford side – refusing to sign a new long-term contract to stay at the club.
Pogba wouldn’t be the first player to produce a massive profit for a selling club, here are five other players who returned to their former clubs:
5) Peter Crouch (Tottenham and Portsmouth)
Two clubs have re-signed the well-travelled striker, with Tottenham paying the most for the privilege. In 2000 they sold the teenager to QPR for just £60,000, only to buy him nine years later for £10m. Portsmouth signed him in 2001 for £1.5m then sold him to Aston Villa for £5m in 2002, netting a £3.5m profit, and he returned in 2008 for £11m.
