Juventus willing to offer Man Utd three stars to fend off Real Madrid in Paul Pogba race

Pogba’s future has been the subject of intense speculation for months with Real Madrid and the Old Lady most heavily linked.

The France international re-joined Manchester United from Juventus in 2016 but wants to leave again.

He has stated that he would love play under Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane with his compatriot also keen to bring him to the Bernabeu.

But the Italian champions should not be completely ruled out, especially after reports of their latest commitment.

According to Italian publication Corriere dello Sport, the Juventus are willing to offer Joao Cancelo, Blaise Matuidi and Douglas Costa to United to help them win the race for Pogba.

Bringing in the likes of Matthijs de Ligt and others on big wages such as Adrien Rabiot and Aaron Ramsey this summer has made it difficult for Juventus to afford Pogba outright.

The Red Devils insist they will not budge on a £150m asking price for the World Cup winner.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still keen on keeping Pogba and is looking in other areas to strengthen this summer.

But the club have been linked with Cancelo, Matuidi, and Costa in the past at one time or another.

Right-back Cancelo would be the most unlikely to arrive at Old Trafford, however, with United only just paying £50m for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

United are believed to have received no offers for Pogba yet, despite interest from the Italians and Real Madrid.

He played 45 minutes in a pre-season friendly against Leeds yesterday, showing glimpses of his best form.

And their are even rumours that Solskjaer could give Pogba the captain’s armband in a bid to convince him to stay at the club.

His agent, Mino Raiola certainly has not ruled out an Old Trafford though exit, saying earlier in the week: “There’s still nothing. Staying at Manchester United? I live my life day by day, we’ll see what happens.

“The end of this story hasn’t been written. We’re here today, I don’t know about tomorrow.”
