Juventus boss Max Allegri addresses Paul Pogba return speculation

Paul Pogba could make a shock return to Juventus when his contract expires in the summer.

The Frenchman has flattered to deceive at Manchester United despite his overwhelming talent. Since re-signing for ‘ The Red Devils’ in 2016 for a record-breaking fee of €105 million, Pogba has proved his elite-level skillset.

He’s produced moments of genuine brilliance. The Frenchman’s vision is astounding, his passing ability is reminiscent of the golden generation at United, and his creativity astounds fans around the globe.

But sadly, these instances are few and far between. At his best, he captivates supporters with his sensational talent. But Pogba is often criticised by managers and pundits for a perceived poor attitude.

Although he could agree on a new deal with the Manchester club, it seems unlikely, especially when he’s able to negotiate with any team of his choosing. And the former World Cup winner is more than spoiled for choice.

Is Paul Pogba set for a Juventus return?

Manchester United broke the bank on the midfielder because of his fantastic performances in Italy. His style of play flourished in Serie A as he bossed the centre of the park with his superb playmaking ability. Therefore, a return to Juventus may allow him to recapture his career-best form.

According to The Manchester Evening News, the Italian side is interested in bringing him back. And recently, their manager, Max Allegri, discussed the possibility of a reunion between the player and the club.

As per Gazzetta, he said: “It doesn’t make sense to talk about Pogba at this point of the season. I don’t know what he’ll do in the summer. We had a great relationship. However, he got a bit angry because I always beat him at basketball and football too.”

Although Pogba shines with the ball at his feet, he needs to work on his ability with his hands. His former head coach absolutely demolished him during a free throw basketball challenge, much to his annoyance.

It was the second time the Italian had got the better of him, having also dominated him in a football challenge as well. But as long as Pogba has the mental fortitude to get over these defeats, a Juventus return makes perfect sense.
