Man Utd could get either Dybala or Pjanic by selling Pogba to Juventus
According to a report by Italian outlet Tuttosport (h/t The Sun), Manchester United could either receive Paulo Dybala or Miralem Pjanic by selling Paul Pogba to Juventus.
The report suggests that although Real Madrid remain favourites to sign Pogba when the transfer window commences, the Serie A giants are hoping to turn the tide in their favour by offering either Dybala or Pjanic as a sweetener.
Incidentally, Pogba joined us from Juventus but The Sun reports that the player is keen to leave Old Trafford while Juve are interested in re-signing him.
The Sun claims that United are willing to let Pogba leave for a fee in the region of £100million. We do have the option to extend his stay by another year – and that would give us a stronger chance to negotiate the price.
However, with Pogba keen to leave, it would be better for the club to offload him as soon as possible.
There is no point in retaining a player who doesn’t want to stay. In fact, he has missed a good majority of the season already due to an injury that later needed surgery.

With the season on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, it remains to be seen how it will affect the transfer window. But once it opens, United must sanction a deal for him.
Getting either Dybala or Pjanic as a sweetener would provide us with an additional boost and there’s no doubt about that.
