Paul Pogba to Juventus - Reports in Italy reveal stunning Man Utd swap deal

Manchester United are reportedly looking to swap Paul Pogba for Douglas Costa and cash from Juventus.

Juventus have not given up their transfer pursuit of Pogba despite the sacking of Jose Mourinho.

The Special One’s relationship with the Frenchman got so bad that Pogba was considering leaving the club.

There were several reports of bust-ups between the duo, while one incident caught on camera revealed a particularly frosty encounter

Mino Raiola had already started putting the feelers out last year and had sought out Barcelona in the summer.

The Nou Camp outfit made a bid of £55m plus Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes, but the offer was rejected outright.

Since then, Juve have emerged as the top contenders and remain firmly interested in the World Cup winner.

And reports in Italy reveal that United would be open to a deal with the Serie A champions, if another player came the other way.

The Red Devils have long held Costa as an interesting player and see him as a potential solution to their right-wing problem.

Tuttosport have gone as far to report that United would want the Brazilian attacker as part of any deal that Pogba return to Turin.

The World Cup winner has looked a new player after Mourinho’s dismissal, playing in a more advanced role under interim coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

In the four matches he has played under the Norwegian, Pogba has scored four times and assisted three.

The 25-year-old missed the Reading clash at the weekend through injury but Solskjaer has confirmed he will return for the Tottenham match.

He said: “He looked okay towards the end there, so he’ll be fit.

“He did have some problems but he came through the last couple of sessions well, so he should be okay.”
