It appears that Juventus is not yet giving up hope that it would be able to ink a deal with Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba. The Italian transfer window is still open until September 2 and according to reports the Italian giants are currently looking around to raise funds. Several reports claim that Juventus is trying to offload Mario Mandzukic, the Croatian striker who declined the switch to Manchester United to Bayern Munich.

Juventus is still interested in concreting a deal with Paul Pogba and is reportedly prepared to sell two of its players just to fund the £150million for the Manchester United midfielder. There is still a chance for the French World Cup winner Paul Pogba to leave Old Trafford this August with the Spanish and Italian transfer window still open until September 2. The 26 years old midfielder is anticipated to be with Real Madrid before the deadline of the English transfer window, however, the La Liga giants did not come into terms with the Manchester United.

Paul Pogba came back to the Theatre of Dreams from Juventus three years earlier but could be moving to Turin with the Italian champions also eager to get his signature. According to reports, Juventus plans to offload Paulo Dybala to Paris Saint-Germain is another alternative if the team pushes through with its interest in Neymar, the Brazilian football superstar. Both Dybala and Mandzukic were associated with Manchester United until the end of the transfer window this summer and Juventus is willing to sacrifice both players to help fund Pogba's transfer, reports claim.

There were also several claims that Manchester United will not get in Paul Pogba's way if the right offer is received even though Ed Woodward is a popular admirer of the previous World Cup winner. Meanwhile, Patrice Evra, the hero of the Red Devils who played along with Paulo Pogba at Juventus, thinks that the Frenchman does not feel loved at the Old Tafford as he used to in Italy. According to Evra, he has no idea what the future holds for Pogba.

He added that he does not know if Paul Pogba really felt loved in Juventus since he does not feel that love in Manchester United. Evra added that we tend to forget what the player is about. He shared that a player is about performing on the pitch, so terminate him if he is not playing well but if he is focused on that.
