Serie A holders Juventus are reportedly looking at the prospect of re-signing Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba in a part-exchange deal involving Paulo Dybala as a makeweight.
Dybala, 24, has struggled for regular playing time since the beginning of the current campaign and this has spread speculation over his future with Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini recently claiming that he could head to either Spain or England in January.
Amidst this, The Mirror reports that the Bianconeri are eager to reclaim the services of former midfielder Pogba and they are prepared to use Dybala as a bait to convince United to sanction the Frenchman’s sale.
It is added that the Bianconeri are said to value Dybala around the £100m mark and they are willing to offer an additional £50m alongside the Argentine to push through a transfer agreement between the sides.
Dybala had come through a strong campaign last term where he enjoyed his best-ever scoring season with 26 goals across all competitions. However, he has yet to find the net this time around with just 100 minutes of league action under his disposal after the first three games.
Because of this, there has been plenty of uncertainty surrounding his future which has recently made Zamparini to suggest that his former player could leave the Bianconeri at the turn of the year.
Meanwhile, Pogba’s future at Old Trafford remains doubtful despite him having started each of the club’s league games this season. The Frenchman has on numerous occasions refused to dismiss a move away from United and a recent report from M.E.N has suggested that he may pursue a fresh challenge next summer.
According to the publication, the Frenchman was supposedly promised a move to Spain by super-agent Mino Raiola upon his United return in the summer of 2016 and an exit could come to fruition at the end of the current campaign.
