- The Frenchman has made it clear he wants to leave Old Trafford
- Real Madrid are another big European team looking to secure the services of the midfielder
Juventus are reportedly planning lure Paul Pogba back to the Allianz Stadium after his relationship with Manchester United continues to nosedive.
The Frenchman was excluded in the Red Devils' squad that suffered 2-0 defeat to struggling Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on New Year's Day.
Pogba recently staged a return to first-team action after staying about two months on the sidelines due to the ankle injury he picked up in their draw against the Gunners in September.
Having featured in defeat to Watford and victory over Newcastle United, the midfielder was missing in action in their last two games and is primed for ankle surgery.
SunSport reports that the France international was said to have complained of discomfort on his foot after his last few appearances.
The publication further revealed that this development surfaced days after agent Mino Raiola slammed United by claiming the club was so badly run and would ruin the careers of players like Pele and Maradona.
According to Italian publication, Calciomercato, Pogba is uncomfortable with life at Old Trafford and Juve are ready to bring him back to Turin in the summer.
He was close to joining Real Madrid last transfer window but with the impressive form of Valverde, Los Blancos are hoping to back the Urugyaun attacker.
The Old Lady are also not ruling a chance to get the Frenchman to sign a deal during the current January transfer window despite Pogba looking increasingly unsettled.
