Juventus are in contact with Manchester United star Paul Pogba and the Serie A giants have reportedly offered a cut-price deal to the Frenchman.
The 28-year-old has entered the final few months of his current contract and the midfielder has turned down a contract extension proposal from the record Premier League champions.
The France international currently earns about £15 million a year in salary at the Old Trafford stadium and the Red Devils hierarchy have reportedly offered an improved contract proposal to the World Cup winner.
According to the Italian journalist Rudy Galetti, Juventus have submitted a deal worth €9 million (£7.5m) a year in salary plus bonuses of €3m (£2.5m) to Paul Pogba.
Galetti further claims that the negotiations between the two parties are moving swiftly at the moment and the 28-year-old could return to his former club next season.
Letting Pogba leave the club will be the right decision by Manchester United. The Frenchman joined for a record fee of around £94 million, however, the midfielder has failed to live up to the expectations at the Old Trafford stadium.
The World Cup winner is approaching his 30s and it might not be a shrewd decision by the club’s hierarchy to offer an improved contract proposal to the 28-year-old, given he has sustained a long-term injury in almost every season over the past few campaigns.
Meanwhile, Manchester United are looking likely to miss out on qualifying for the Champions League next season. The Red Devils are currently fifth in the table with 47 points in 28 games, one point behind the fourth-placed Arsenal who have three games in hand.
Therefore, the Frenchman might not want to hang around at the Old Trafford stadium if the Mancunians fail to secure a place in Europe’s elite club competition.
