Paul Pogba is evaluating the three-year contract offered by Juventus which is believed to be worth at least €7.5m-a-year. 

The Bianconeri are working on bringing the Frenchman back to Turin this summer after he left the club to re-join Manchester United in 2016.

Pogba emerged as one of Europe’s leading midfielders during his first spell in Serie A, and while he’s flashed his majesty in the Premier League, there’s no doubting that his time at United will be considered a major disappointment amid a turbulent period for the Red Devils.

“Positive” steps were said to have been taken as Juve met with Pogba’s representatives in Turin on Monday before Juve offered the Frenchman a contract.

Paul Pogba is weighing up his options after Juventus offer him a three-year deal

GOAL Italia’s Romeo Agresti reported on Tuesday morning that Pogba is “weighing up” the three-year contract offered by Juventus which is said to be worth €7.5m-a-year plus bonuses.

The French midfielder is demanding an €11m salary, but the club are hopeful that the player’s love for Turin will be enough to convince him to rejoin at a lower price despite Paris Saint-Germain’s interest.

Pogba also has a great relationship with current Juventus boss Max Allegri, who’s reportedly keen on coaching the enigmatic Frenchman again. But the manager was characteristically coy when he was asked about a possible reunion with the 29-year-old after Juve’s 2-2 draw with Lazio on Monday night.

“Pogba? Who is Pogba? I don’t know him [laughs] …is it an English word, maybe?!” Allegri told DAZN (via Fabrizio Romano). “I forgot about Paul Pogba, it was too many years ago,” he added.

Juventus are desperate to bolster their midfield once again this summer and are prioritising a move for free agent Pogba over the brilliant – but expensive – Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. The Serb scored the late equaliser for Lazio on Monday night and manager Maurizio Sarri said post-match that he was convinced that his star midfielder will not depart Rome for another Italian club.
