Maurizio Sarri on if Juventus will try to sign Man United’s Paul Pogba

Pogba & Man United

Since Paul Pogba returned to Manchester United, the Frenchman has struggled to live up to his price-tag.

Pogba never really seemed to get on with Jose Mourinho, with it having been reported that, at one point, Mourinho called the Manchester United midfielder a virus.

After Mourinho was sacked in December of 2018 and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was put in temporary charge, Pogba’s displays did improve.

However, his form soon declined again, and Pogba scored just two and assisted none over the course of the Red Devils’ final 10 league games of the 2018/19 season.

Sarri on Pogba

Despite his up and down campaign, Pogba has reportedly attracted interest from both La Liga giants Real Madrid and Serie A champions Juventus this summer.

Maurizio Sarri would take charge of his first pre-season game as Juve boss on Sunday.

Juventus would lose 3-2 vs Tottenham, thanks to a late wonder-strike from Harry Kane.

The day before facing Spurs, Sarri was asked about the possibility of Juventus signing Pogba this summer, to which he responded:

“I am not the technical director, so I do not know [if Pogba will come to Juventus].

“I like him very much, but I don’t know the situation.

“Paul Pogba is a Manchester United player, so I don’t want to talk about that.” As quoted by ESPN.
