Juventus are keen on a deal to sign Paul Pogba from Manchester United, with Mario Mandzukic heading in the other direction, according to reports in Italy.

Italian website Tuttomercatoweb, as quoted by talkSPORT, is reporting that Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici has recently been spotted in Manchester as he looks to try and thrash out a January deal.

The same story says that Paratici is apparently in Manchester as he looks to complete a deal for the Red Devils to sign Mandzukic in the January transfer window.

But it is also claimed that Juventus are keen to organise a swap deal that would allow the Italian side to re-sign Pogba in the new year.

The French midfielder has been out injured in recent weeks and he has not featured for the Red Devils since the 1-1 draw with Arsenal back at the end of September.

According to the same story, Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri is keen to get Mandzukic off his books in the new year, regardless of whether the Italian club will be able to re-sign Pogba or not.

Manchester United have been left short on options up front this season after they opted to let both Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku leave Old Trafford in the summer transfer window.
