Fabio Paratici, the Serie A club’s sporting director, has denied Juve will make a move for Pogba amid rumours he could leave Old Trafford
Juventus have ruled out making a move for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, amid rumours he could leave Old Trafford.
Pogba, the France international, has once before made the move from Manchester to Turin, leaving United to join Juve in 2012.
He spent four years in Italy where he developed into one of the best players in the world, before returning to the Red Devils for a then-world record £89million.
However, Pogba is now being linked with leaving United once again, amid suggestions his relationship with manager Jose Mourinho is falling apart.
Mourinho, the Portuguese, has denied there is a rift between the pair, even though he stripped Pogba of the vice-captaincy and made it clear the France star will never skipper United again.
A training ground spat between Pogba and Mourinho was well publicised after being caught on television cameras, while the midfielder has publicly flirted with Barcelona as the La Liga giants express interest in securing his services.
Juventus are also said to have been keeping tabs on Pogba, as they are reportedly keen on bringing the 25-year-old back to Serie A.
However, the club’s sporting director Fabio Paratici has ruled out a move for Pogba, admitting re-signing their former star is not on the cards.
“We love him very much,” Paratici said, as quoted by Sky Sports. “We want him to do well since we are close to him but he isn’t a Juve player anymore.
“We’re connected to him, but we’ve never thought about it and we’re not going to think about it.”
