Premier League transfer gossip and rumours
Pogba and Dybala to swap?
Italian champions Juventus have told Manchester United that they are interested in re-signing Paul Pogba.
French midfielder Pogba spent four seasons with Juventus before rejoining United in 2016. Juve will face competition from Real Madrid for the 26-year-old.
The Guardian reports that the Turin club have “turned their attentions” to the World Cup winner as they aim to sign a world-class midfielder before next season.
However, they don’t have the funds to fork out a huge fee for Pogba so they may offer players as part of the deal.
Paulo Dybala could be used as a makeweight in the Pogba deal, says the Daily Express, while Alex Sandro, Douglas Costa, Joao Cancelo or Miralem Pjanic are other possible options for an exchange.
