After the defeat by Leipzig, Manchester United will no longer be watched in the Champions League and they are eighth in the Premier League after last night's draw in the city derby. In addition to the results, the game of the Red Devils is not so good, they have a lot of problems in the backline, and without Bruno Fernandes, they have almost no effect in the attack.
The goals of Rashford and Martial are missing, the unconvincing and somewhat cowardly edition in the derby did not satisfy the fans, so there is still talk of big changes in the club. The management claims that he is behind Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who convinces the public that Paul Pogba is committed to the club and that he will stay.
The French footballer's agent claims the opposite. Mino Raiola recently made a real mess by saying that Pogba is not happy at the club and wants to go. "I can say that it is over with Pogba and Manchester United," the controversial agent said in a statement for Italian Tutosport.
Pogba to Juve
This immediately activated the old story about the return of the midfielder to Juventus, who does not hide that he would like the Frenchman to see there again, and it is no secret that Pogba created strong ties in Turin and would have nothing against returning.
There were also stories in the Italian press about a possible swap deal between Juventus and Manchester United, journalist Tancredi Palmeri claimed that the Old Lady plans to send Paul Dybala to the Devils in exchange for the 2018 world champion.
Even the sports director of Bianconer, Fabio Paratici, talked about the possible return of the French international, so he tried to remain very enigmatic. "We adore Paul, he's a great player, but he plays for Manchester United.
He won't be a free agent, you have to pay if you want to sign Pogba. We all know what his value is. We also know the price, we'll see what happens." , Paratici said in the middle of the week, after the match between Barcelona and Juventus in the Champions League (0: 3).
Now that the English media are transmitting new information, the Mirror claims that Paul Pogba could return to Juventus in January - on loan. The idea of the Italian champion is to loan the Frenchman until the end of the season, but they have to purchase him next summer, although it is not specified for what amount.
Recall, Pogba returned to Old Trafford in the summer of 2016 for 105,000,000 euros, which was a world record at the time. The Bianconeri made a big profit because they had previously brought the Frenchman as a free agent.
Two years ago, it was written that the French national team player could go to Real Madrid, but United set the price of 150,000,000 euros, which was rejected by Blancos. It is clear that after the pale releases and problems with injuries, as well as the fact that United activated the clause for the extension of cooperation, the price of the 27-year-old midfielder fell.
And while the England media persistently write about his departure, Pogba claims that he is maximally dedicated to Manchester United. After the goalless draw in the derby, which started somewhat and surprisingly in the first 11, he appeared on social networks.
"I have always fought and I will always fight for Manchester United, my teammates, and fans. The future is far away, today is important and I am 1000 percent committed! Together we are always stronger. Everything is clear between me and the club and that will not change" "When you don't know what's going on inside, you better not talk," the Frenchman wrote.
