No Hesitation About Future of Resurging Juventus Star

Paul Pogba has shown flashes of his older self in the last couple of games, providing a key assist in the first leg versus Sevilla. The ace has finally been able to appear in consecutive matches, albeit he has yet to start after a knee injury almost completely derailed his first season back in Turin.

Per Calciomercato, despite what has happened this year, some tension with the management for how his meniscus tear was treated, and the club’s legal troubles, there’s no doubt the midfield will stay put in the summer. It would be the case even should the Bianconeri be excluded from the Champions League.

Some rumors about a potential split between Juventus and Pogba surfaced while he was on the shelf, but they were quickly dispelled. He inked a four-year contract last summer. It’s unlikely that he’ll revise or give back part of his wages since he missed most of the campaign.

The ex-Manchester United ace has made cameos in six of the past eight fixtures. Unless something weird happens, coach Massimiliano Allegri likes to reserve one of his five subs for him. His entrance always provides a jolt, especially at home since he’s a fan favorite.

Our Take on Juventus and Pogba

All hopes seemed lost about him having any sort of impact this year at multiple points, but he showed great determination in coming back and getting into shape. Even though he can only play in small doses and his conditioning is lacking, it’s still manifest that his class and technique are way above average. Should he have a normal summer, the Bianconeri wouldn’t have to look far to replace Adrien Rabiot eventually.
