Juventus are now considering the idea of swapping Cristiano Ronaldo for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, MySportDab reports.
This may be Manchester United biggest chance to bring Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford as Juventus can consider a swap deal involving Paul Pogba.
The Serie A giants want to resign again Pogba, after they sold him four years ago for £89m.
Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola revealed earlier this week that his client wants to leave United.
Juventus are now leading the race for the World Cup winner but they are unlikely to fund the transfer by paying a fee.
The Old Lady are keen to let go of some top players at the club to ease the financial burden.
According to The Independent, Juventus could consider letting five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo leave the club in the swap.
United fans have waited since forever for their Portuguese hero to return back to Old Trafford, ever since his 2009 exit for Real Madrid.
Despite being 35 years old, the forward is still playing at his best in the Champions League.
The Independent claim that Juventus may want to let Ronaldo leave because they want a new ‘collective system’ which is not focused on one player.
It would be the biggest swap deals of all time should the two clubs reach an agreement next summer.
But, either way, Raiola wants to give his client a new lease of life.
“it’s obviously over for Paul Pogba at Manchester United,” Raiola told Italian Newspaper Tuttosport.
Ronaldo is now 35 years old and is by far the highest football player earner at Juventus, earns around £30million per year.
The Serie A giants are considering reducing their wage bill as they plan for the future under new coach Andrea Pirlo.
