Man United's Paul Pogba open to Juventus return - Raiola

Paul Pogba has played only eight times for Manchester United this season because of injury and not at all since Boxing Day but is understood to be close to full fitness

Pogba has hardly played since August as a result of two significant injury layoffs, the latter still ongoing after undergoing ankle surgery and keeping to a cautious recovery programme in order to avoid any further setbacks or relapses.

Italy is like his second home or family, same for (Zlatan) Ibrahimovic.

Man United welcome their city rivals to Old Trafford on the 8th of March and as per the updates, Paul Pogba could be fit for this high-profile game since he is expected to start outdoor training at Carrington in a fortnight's time.

"He'd like to come back to Juventus but we'll see what will happen after the Euros".

United have lacked goals from midfield in Pogba's absence and although Bruno Fernandes joined the club last month, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said his signing does not mean Pogba will leave in the summer.

However, with Lazio now third in Serie A just one point behind Juventus and Inter, and the Serbian in good form (four goals and seven assists in 28 appearances), that price could rise come the end of the campaign once more.

Juventus remain interested in re-signing the midfielder and Real Madrid also have him on their radar but both clubs consider such a fee too high for a player who has been largely underwhelming at United since he rejoined in 2016.

"Pogba wants to play at the best levels always. but he can't escape Manchester United now, in this moment where the club is not having a good period".

The transfer window will be open until later in the summer this year, however.
