Juventus have made contact with Manchester United to discuss a potential deal for Paul Pogba, according to a report in England.

Metro is reporting that the Serie A giants are eager to bring Pogba back to Turin and have asked Manchester United to keep them updated on any developments at Old Trafford.

The same article adds that Juventus made a formal approach for the World Cup winner ahead of their 2-1 loss to the Red Devils in the Champions League in Turin.

The English website goes on to suggest that the Turin side have managed to maintain good relations with Juventus since their “civil negotiations” during Pogba’s £89m move to Manchester United.

According to Metro, Pogba would be receptive to the idea of a return to the Serie A side despite having completed his club record move to Manchester United in August 2016.

The 25-year-old has struggled to find a level of consistency since his move to Manchester United from Juventus, having won four successive Serie A titles under Antonio Conte and Massimiliano Allegri.

Pogba has only got his hands on the Europa League and the League Cup but the Red Devils don’t appear any closer to winning their first Premier League crown since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013.

Manchester United will return to Premier League action on Saturday when the 20-time English champions welcome Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon.
