PAUL POGBA could still be lured back to Juventus from Manchester United this summer, according to reports.
Pogba, 26, has been the subject of much speculation and the Frenchman was linked with a move to Real Madrid.
Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane was keen on signing his compatriot, but president Florentino Perez objected and he is trying to push ahead with a deal for Paris Saint-Germain’s Neymar.
Juventus, meanwhile, were very eager to sign Pogba last week and supposedly offered three players – Paulo Dybala, Mario Mandzukic and Blaise Matuidi to complete a deal.
Although the Premier League transfer window has shut, European clubs can still snap up players.
Sunday Express Sport claim Juve are hatching a transfer plan to tempt Pogba to head back to Turin.
However, SunSport revealed earlier this week that they will have to raise £180million as United won’t accept less than that.
Despite his inconsistent displays at Old Trafford, the Serie A powerhouse know what they are getting with Pogba as he enjoyed four successful years there which was sandwiched in between his two spells at United.
While Pogba has been tipped to leave, Gary Neville thinks it would damage the Red Devils in the short term.

He said: “I think there are three or four players at Old Trafford who have higher levels of quality that in a perfect world, Ole would probably like them all out at once.
“But actually, if they left it would weaken the team that badly it’d mean that they wouldn’t challenge for the Champions League etc.
“You can’t lose Lukaku, Pogba, [David] de Gea, [Anthony] Martial all in one – you’d be absolutely decimated.”
