Paul Pogba is on his way back to Juventus as part of a complete revamp of their midfield, as it’s reported only Manuel Locatelli is guaranteed to remain.
Just six years after his €105m transfer to Manchester United, Pogba is returning to Turin as a free agent for the second time.
Thursday’s meeting with lawyer Rafaela Pimenta was successful, they agreed all the terms and he will undergo a medical to sign the three-year contract with option for a fourth season in the first week of July.
According to Tuttosport, that’s just the beginning of a complete revamp of the Juventus midfield, as only Locatelli is sure will be part of the squad going into the 2022-23 campaign.
Adrien Rabiot is in the final season of his contract and heading towards the Premier League, with a price-tag of €15-20m simple for Manchester City, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea.
Arthur Melo was already meant to leave in January before talks with Arsenal collapsed and he remains on the way out.
Aaron Ramsey is negotiating to terminate his contract by mutual consent a year early to get his salary off the books, but he wants €4m to make the split, whereas Juve are offering at most €2m.
Weston McKennie has also been linked with a Premier League move, having now recovered from a fracture in his foot.
Denis Zakaria only joined Juve in January from Borussia Monchengladbach for €8.6m and that alone could keep him in Turin for a little longer, if the right offer does not come in.
