Juventus are willing to offer former Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey to Manchester United in part-exchange for Paul Pogba, according to reports.
Former Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot is also expected to be part of the deal for Pogba’s return.
Pogba has been linked with a move away from United for months since he expressed his wish to leave the club for a ‘new challenge’ in the summer.
The 2018 World Cup winner remained in Manchester but has endured a frustrating season, with a series of ankle injuries limiting him to just eight appearances.
The lack of game time hasn’t dispelled the talk of a departure, however, and Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, recently admitted that Pogba ‘would not mind’ returning to Italy with former club Juventus.
Juventus, as well as Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid, have been strongly touted to make a move for the midfielder and it’s reported they may try and send some players in the opposite direction to secure the deal.
And According to CalcioMercato, Rabiot and Ramsey are among the players that the Serie A champions would be willing to use to try and get Pogba.
Both Ramsey and Rabiot arrived in Turin on free transfers in the summer but have failed to make an impact in Serie A.
It’s reported that Juventus value both players at 25-30 million euros each, so a significant transfer fee would also have to be paid if they were to sign Pogba.
Meanwhile, United reportedly want to sell Pogba before the Europeans Championship begins in the summer.
Raiola said that a decision would be made on his client’s future after the tournament but the Daily Star reports that executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is desperate to sell Pogba before it starts on June 12, and will demand £100million.
It’s claimed the club don’t want to run the risk of Pogba getting injured at the tournament and also don’t want his impending departure to be a distraction on the pre-season tour.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
