Paul Pogba ‘tells Manchester United he wants to join Juventus to play with Cristiano Ronaldo’

PAUL POGBA has told Manchester United he wants to return to Juventus – and link up with Cristiano Ronaldo – according to reports.

The unsettled midfielder has endured a frustrating start to the season and the Express claim the 25-year-old has notified the club of his desire to leave when the next transfer window reopens in January.

Pogba hopes that by giving them a few months to find his replacement, his move will be granted.

The Frenchman joined United two years ago from the Italian giants for a then-world-record £89m.

However, he has struggled to replicate the sort of form which earned him a move back to England in the first place – and is now ready to call it quits in England.

His relationship with United boss Jose Mourinho has been under intense scrutiny – with the input of his agent Mino Raiola not helping the issue – leaving him little option but to seek a move away.

Pogba has also been a target for Spanish giants Barcelona, but for now it looks as though Juve are in the driving seat for his signature.
