As the world awaits a definitive answer regarding Paul Pogba’s potential move back to Manchester United, hints continue to be dropped over the transfer.
The saga is now undoubtedly testing the most ardent of transfer market fans, with the Frenchman still being linked with a switch to the Premier League ahead of the new season, as noted by Sky Sports.
With a week-and-a-half to go until the new campaign kicks off, the 23-year-old has yet to confirm where his future lies, be it in Turin or Manchester, leading to frustration over how long the move is taking to be announced.
An eagle-eyed fan has seemingly spotted another major hint that the Bianconeri are planning for life without their talismanic midfielder, with his number being handed on to a teammate.
The photo below shows Juve shirts in a store in Paris, with Paulo Dybala’s, and not Pogba’s, name emblazoned above the number 10, the current squad number assigned to the French international.
Whether this is a widespread change from Juve remains to be seen as it appears to be an isolated shop at the moment, but coupled with Pogba being removed from the club’s official online store, it does suggest that they are essentially moving on without him.
Time will tell how long it takes before he has the move confirmed, but ultimately all the signs are pointing towards Juve selling him with Massimiliano Allegri bolstering his squad this summer to cope with the loss with the signings of the likes of Miralem Pjanic, Marko Pjaca and Gonzalo Higuain.
