Paul Pogba is eyeing a move away from Old Trafford when his contract is up in the summer, with three interested clubs hopeful of signing the Frenchman.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport the midfielder – who will be allowed to leave as a free agent should Manchester United not be able to tie him down with a contract extension – has high hopes of returning to Juventus – but the Old Lady would need to get rid of at least two players to afford him.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in signing him, but Pogba has reportedly told his agent Mino Raiola that his ambition is to make a move back to north Italy.
Come January, Pogba, 28, will be able to sign a pre-contract agreement with any interested club before he is able to complete a free move when the next window opens in the summer.
While his desire is reportedly to make a move back to the Bianconeri, they are unable to afford his current £11.91million-a-year salary, so for the deal to come into fruition he would have to take a pay cut.
Legislation called the ‘growth decree’ is another way in which Juventus could bring Pogba back to Turin as it provides a tax discount of 50 per cent on the gross salaries of players and coaches from abroad.

Even still, the Italian giants will need to offload two players to secure Pogba’s services, too.
Presently, Aaron Ramsey and Weston McKennie have been put on the transfer market, with the former Arsenal player being one of Old Lady’s top earners.
Pogba moved to Juventus from Man United in 2012 and spent four impressive seasons there before making a world-record-breaking move back to Old Trafford, for some £89.3 million.
According to Football Italia, he is still on good terms with some of the players at the club and even manager Massimiliano Allegri.
