TOP STORY: Pogba on brink of Juve return?

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba could be set for a homecoming, as Get French Football News reports that Gianluca Di Marzio says the France international could be on his way back to Juventus. 

The Old Trafford club have been informed of Juve’s interest, and Pogba is keen for the deal to go across the line. The report adds that the Old Lady might be willing to send players the opposite way to soften the blow of losing Pogba for United.

Pogba spent four profitable years at Juventus and made a name for himself after United sold him in 2012. The Red Devils brought him back in 2016, but some critics continue to argue that he hasn’t replicated the form that earned him a return to the Premier League.

United mad for Maddison

Manchester United are set to take the front seat in fighting for the signature of Leicester City midfielder James Maddison, The Independent reports. 

They’ll have to fend off interest from Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham, but it’s thought that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are in pole position for the signing and are prepared to offer £60 million for the 22-year-old’s services.

It isn’t difficult to see why some of the big clubs in England are interested in Maddison, given that he created more goal-scoring opportunities than anyone else in the Premier League in 2018-19. With that in mind, he could be a suitable “plan B” after interest in Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho appeared to fall through.

Richarlison happy to stay put at Everton

One player who might not be arriving at Old Trafford this summer is Everton forward Richarlison, who is happy to stay at Everton, according to The Sun.

Manchester United and Barcelona have both had the Brazilian on their radar of late, with Everton reportedly demanding as much as £100 million to part company with him. However, Richarlison said: “It’s a nice feeling when you get praise for your good work, but I’m not thinking about a transfer at the moment. I’ve just arrived at Everton. I’m happy here.”

The forward joined England’s top flight with Watford back in 2017, and after earning himself a £50 million move to Everton, he produced 14 goals in all competitions for the Toffees last season and earned a call-up to the Brazil national team.


— Fenerbahce captain Hasan Ali Kaldirim could be on his way to West Ham, according to the BBC. The left-back was linked with the Hammers in 2017 and now has a £4.42 million release clause in his contract, which expires in 12 months.

Kieran Trippier‘s future at Tottenham is up in the air after his side lost the Champions League final on Saturday, the BBC reports. A target for Napoli, Juventus and Atletico Madrid, Trippier said, “I’ll enjoy my summer, come back in preseason, and that’s when I’ll sit down with the manager and have a talk about my future. I see a lot of speculation about me not being here. I give everything, 100 percent every game, win lose or draw. So we’ll see what happens in preseason.”
