Manchester United powerhouse Paul Pogba could force his way out of Old Trafford in the summer, and Paulo Dybala wants Juventus to swoop in to resign his former team-mate.
The Argentinian linked-up with Pogba for a single season in 2015-16, as the Frenchman shot to fame for his thunderous strikes, silky touch and midfield dominance.
Pogba has never showed the best of his talents in England though, and Dybala wants to see the World Cup winner back to his best in Serie A, wearing black and white.
‘Paul and I have a good relationship and when he played here we were always looking for a new way to celebrate goals,’ the forward told Otro.
‘We scored a lot of goals so the celebrations changed often. I hope that one day we will be able to celebrate again together.’
Pogba’s Serie A performances tempted United to splash a club record transfer fee, but under intense scrutiny, he has failed to deliver.
Paul Pogba’s Juventus stats
Age on signing:
Serie A titles:
The midfielder is out with an ankle injury but with United getting no closer to the Premier League title and their top-four challenge looking precarious, he is not expected to stay – especially if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can’t deliver Champions League football.
Pogba has kept in touch with the group of Juventus team-mates he was closest with, nicknamed the ‘Panitas’: Juan Cuadrado, Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain. They are reportedly looking to convince Pogba to return to Turin in the summer.
The Frenchman stayed in Italy for four seasons before returning to boyhood club United, making 178 appearances for Juve.
While United went down 2-0 against Liverpool without putting up much resistance at Anfield, Juventus extended their Serie A lead to four points – finally separating from Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan.
After Inter were held 2-2 by Lecce, Cristiano Ronaldo scored a double to push Juve to a 2-1 victory over Parma.
