The Serie A giants are hopeful that the player’s previous stint with the club as well as his uncertain future at Old Trafford would pave the way for his move to Turin.

Juventus are preparing a player-plus-cash deal involving Adrien Rabiot and 85m to convince Manchester United to allow Paul Pogba to leave the club in the January transfer window.

Prior to his return to the Premier League in the summer of 2016, Pogba spent four seasons playing for the Serie A giants between 2012 and 2016.

His spell in Italy was highly successful for the French midfielder who helped the club to win four successive Scudetto titles, among other trophies.

And now Juve want to bring the 26-year-old back to the club by offering a player-plus-cash deal which they believe would be very hard to turn down for the Old Trafford residents.

Paul Pogba transfer latest in today's Man United news
According to the Sun, the reigning Serie A champions, who currently find themselves lagging behind Inter Milan, are keen to add Pogba to their ranks this month.

Former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri who moved to Turin in the summer is reportedly a huge fan of the French World Cup-winning midfielder whom he sees as the perfect candidate to implement the new philosophy which he brought to the side in the summer.

The other player involved in the deal, Rabiot, has been a disappointment since moving to Italy on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer. His questionable form has allowed Juventus to reportedly include him as a part of the deal that would see Pogba moving to the Serie A.

Provided the move does end up happening between now and the end of the month, it would be a huge coup on the part of Juventus who are struggling to see off a major title challenge from Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan this season.

Having spent heavily on big-money signings like ex-Man United forward Romelu Lukaku in the summer, the Nerazzurri have emerged as the strongest side to challenge Juventus’ more-than-a-decade long domination over Italian football.

Reports of the Old Lady preparing a bid for the Red devils midfielder have come at a time when the latter’s manager has denied any transfer that would see Pogba leaving the club this month.

Speaking after his side’s drab 0-0 draw with Wolves in the 3rd round of FA Cup on Saturday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer categorically stated that Pogba Cup won’t be leaving the club this month.

Solskjaer said: “You won’t see Paul [Pogba] go in January.’

However, while the Man United manager has clearly stated that the Frenchman would be staying put in January, there are reports claiming that the club is willing to offload the wantaway midfielder if a suitable bid comes through their doors before the end of this month.

The Mirror has reported that the Red devils have apparently told Inter Milan they could sign Pogba if they include striker Lautaro Martinez as a part of any deal that would see the Frenchman moving to the San Siro.
