A major swip: Juventus want to exchange Cristiano Ronaldo for Paul Pogba

Juventus are well prepared to sell there superstar Cristiano Ronaldo in this summer transfer window and are willing to strike a deal with Manchester United to bring Paul Pogba to Turin in his place.

 

Thou the 36-year-old spent the past three seasons with I Bianconeri but unfortunately he hasn’t been able to deliver them the coveted Champions League trophy, while he was taking up a huge amount of their wage bill.

 

During their one season together in 2019 we saw that Coach Massimiliano Allegri struggled to utilise the Portuguese star effectively, the Italian wants to free himself from the shackles of having to satisfy the ageing Ronaldo, according to La Gazzetta.

 

Juve see only two realistic exit strategies for the football legend: Paris Saint-Germain and Man Utd. And the road to Paris appears to be blocked by the determination made by the club to tie down Kylian Mbappe to a new deal while Neymar renewed his contract in May, making Old Trafford a more possible destination.

 

I Bianconeri are eyeing the possibility of getting something – or someone – in return from the Premier League giants. The Italians are hoping to conjure a reunion of their own and bring Pogba back to Turin as part of the deal.

 

A swap deal could satisfy both parties then, allowing the Red Devils, who are searching for another winger, to be reunited with a club legend, while Pogba is able to return to the club where he played his best football.

 

However, Man Utd are not completely sold on the idea. Not only would they require Ronaldo to take a pay cut to join them, but they would also demand money from Juventus as part of the swap deal, as they see Pogba as a more valuable asset than the Portuguese legend.
