Juventus Chief Fabio Paratici Confirms Readiness For Pogba’s Hefty Transfer Price

Paul Pogba has failed to live up to expectations since making his £89million return to Manchester United back in 2016 and has come in for plenty of criticism for his inconsistent performances in the heart of midfield.

He has continuously been linked with a move to Real Madrid or a return to Juventus – and Mino Raiola even talked up a move to Serie A by claiming ‘he can come back to Turin'.

And Juve's sporting director Fabio Paratici has weighed in on the matter, insisting the Italian giants have massive admiration for the French World Cup winner but know a transfer would come at a hefty price.

Paratici told Sport Mediaset: ‘Pogba back to Juve? We love Paul, he's an amazing player but he's playing for Manchester United now.

‘He'll not be a free agent, you've to pay if you want to sign Pogba.
