Juventus ‘never thought about’ Pogba return from United

What to make of Inter Milan and AC Milan after thrilling Milan derby?

Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici says that the club have not considered a return for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

Pogba made his name with the Serie A giants from 2012 until 2016 where he scored 34 goals in 178 appearances and collected four Scudettos with the Italian champions.

His world class form won him a then record 105 million euro move back to United – the side where he started his career in England at the youth academy in 2009.

However, amid reports of a breakdown in his relationship with manager Jose Mourinho, the France World Cup winner has been linked with a return to Juve.

Nonetheless, Paratici insists that this is not the case and Bianconeri have not had the playmaker in their thinking.

He said: “We love him very much. We’re connected to him, but we’ve never thought about it and we’re not going to think about it.”

The Massimiliano Allegri-coached outfit have made a perfect start to 2018/19, winning 10 straight matches in all competitions. They next face Genoa in the league on Saturday.
