Juventus chief has declared his admiration for the midfielder following Turin return links.
Juventus Sporting Director Fabio Paratici has claimed that he still ‘loves Paul Pogba’ in the middle of a possible return to Turin. The 26-year-old confirmed in a recent interview about his intentions in the hunt for a new challenge after a three-year stint with the Red Devils.
‘”Like you said, there is a lot of talking and a lot of thinking as well,’ Pogba told reporters in Japan. For me I have been for three years in Manchester and have been doing great; some good moments and some bad moments, like everybody. Like everywhere else.”
“After this season and everything that happened this season, with my season being my best season as well… I think for me it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else. I am thinking of this – to have a new challenge somewhere else.”
Manchester United graduate fell out with former manager Jose Mourinho and the board decided to sack the manager following the disgruntled environment surrounding the dressing room. Albeit his publicised poor attitude, Real Madrid and Juventus have entered for his signature.
It is also understood that the midfielder prefers a move to Italy over the Spanish giants. Speaking about Paul Pogba, Paratici says that he respects himself being a Manchester United player, but still adores him.
“Pogba is a Manchester United player, he was with us for many years, he grew up here and we love him, but he is a Manchester United player,” said Paratici at Sarri’s official unveiling on Thursday.
Adrien Rabiot confirmed that he is talking with Juventus. However, the director says that many are negotiating with him as he is a free agent.
“There are many clubs who want Rabiot,” Paratici added.
We are in the running, not just for him, but the other targets in our minds. We’ll discuss it with Maurizio and try to find the right targets together for the team we want to see.”
