Juventus has shown that they will do almost anything to get Manchester United star Paul Pogba in the summer transfer window and have offered the Red Devils a choice of two players as part of a possible swap deal.
The Frenchman left Old Trafford to sign for the Italian club in 2012 and then returned four years later in a deal worth £89million.
Now, transfer expert Nicolo Schira claims Pogba is Juventus’ top transfer target this summer and that Juventus chief Fabio Paratici is trying to include either Aaron Ramsey or Douglas Costa into a swap deal that would bring Pogba back to Turin.
“Juventus’ first choice for the next season remains Paul Pogba,” Schira tweeted.
“Fabio Paratici is working to include players like Ramsey or Douglas Costa in the exchange deal with ManchesterUnited.”
Ramsey, 29, left Arsenal on a free transfer to sign for Juventus last summer.
Even though Ramsey hasn’t had the ideal debut campaign for Juventus, he could be an attractive option for United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
And the sale of Pogba, even at a reduced amount if a player exchange is included in the transfer, could help United fund the pursuit of other transfer targets.
As for the left-footed Brazilian, he would also boost Solskjaer’s attacking options as he can play on both flanks and also through the centre, but his main position is on the right-wing, which is the same as the Red Devils’ main transfer target Jadon Sancho.
