Juventus could sell two underperforming midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Adrian Rabiot to boost the fund to sign Paul Pogba.
Juventus is having a pretty bad season under the inexperienced Andrea Pirlo. They are out of the UEFA Champions League. And in Serie A they sit 3rd, 10 points behind the league leaders Inter Milan.
In this situation, Juventus decided to rebuild their squad for next season under Andrea Pirlo. And the Old Lady of Turin want the 28-year-old world cup winner in their squad.
Paul Pogba used to play for the Bianconeri from 2012-2016, after they bought him for free from Manchester United. But, United re-signed Pogba from Juventus in 2016 for £89 million. However, Pogba hasn’t had a great time in Manchester since then.
Can Juventus afford Paul Pogba?
Bianconeri bought both Ramsey and Rabiot for free in 2019, and both earn around £120,000-a-week. Rabiot produced a few good performances in the Juventus shirt but it wasn’t enough to convince the board to keep him for longer. On the other hand, the signing of Ramsey from Arsenal was completely disastrous.
Fabrizio Romano previously stated that Juventus are in ‘love’ with Paul Pogba and they might have signed him in the last summer if there wasn’t any interruption of Pandemic.
Now they want Pogba as he has only one year left on his contract. However, he will still be expensive and Juventus need to raise the transfer budget by selling Ramsey and Rabiot.
West Ham are currently in the race to land the Welsh midfielder, while Everton and Liverpool have also been linked with him. The Toffees are also rumored to be in line for the signature of Rabiot, who manager Carlo Ancelotti handed a senior professional debut when they were both at PSG.
It will be an interesting summer in the transfer market as every team will have to be innovative to sign their targets as they will be short of money for the worldwide pandemic. If Juventus can land Paul Pogba that will be great for Serie A and Pirlo’s side.
