Juventus could look to tempt Manchester United into letting Paul Pogba leave by tabling a player swap deal, with the financial effects of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic limiting their ability to launch a big-money bid.
However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side would only consider trading the Frenchman for another ‘top’ player, according to respected journalist Fabrizio Romano via CBS’s Que Golazo podcast.
This suggests that the Red Devils would have no interest in bringing the likes of Aaron Ramsey or Adrien Rabiot to the club.
If a desirable swap is not possible, it is claimed that a substantial fee would suffice, with the 27-year-old midfielder ‘100%’ certain to leave the 20-time Premier League champions at the end of the season.
However, United may struggle to command a large sum of money in exchange for Pogba unless a number of clubs join the race for his signature.
Solskjaer claimed earlier this month that Pogba’s teammates can convince him to remain at Old Trafford beyond this season by proving their trophy-winning credentials before the end of the campaign.
