Juventus Facing Stiff Competition to Sign Paul Pogba

The story of Paul Pogba and Manchester United has never been a happy one and it’s now coming to a close. The France international will leave Old Trafford when his contract expires in July.

Several prominent clubs are already working on snapping him up, including Juventus, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain. The record-time Italian champions appear to be at the head of the queue. However, they will have to watch out for Liverpool.

As per a recent report from Calciomercato, Jurgen Klopp has held talks with Pogba to discuss what would be one of the most controversial moves in Premier League history.

Liverpool are on the lookout for high-profile reinforcements. Especially now that Sadio Mane looks to be heading towards a sensational switch to Bayern Munich.

Klopp has re-established Anfield as one of the most attractive destinations in Europe. Not many sides can lure top-class players with such ease as Liverpool. You don’t have to look beyond the likes of Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk to understand the Reds’ irresistible charm.

Therefore, Juventus must be feeling concerned about their prospects of re-signing Pogba.

The Italians are reportedly in advanced talks with the player’s representatives. But though negotiations looked to be progressing well, the 29-year-old may stay in the Premier League after all.

Pogba has never thrown away the possibility of staying in England’s elite competition. And while his six-year stint at Man United was a complete disaster, he still has a lot to offer to the Premier League.

Despite his underwhelming career at Old Trafford, the Frenchman is still one of the most highly-rated playmakers in Europe. Any side, including Liverpool, would benefit from his signing.

Considering Klopp’s unique ability to get the most out of his players, Anfield could prove the appropriate landing spot for Pogba to get his career back on track.

If Juventus are to win the race to capture their former star, they would be well advised to hurry up.
