Fabio Paratici shares his thoughts on Juventus’ Paul Pogba pursuit
Former Juventus chief football officer Fabio Paratici has given his opinion on whether the club will be able to lure Paul Pogba from Manchester United this summer.

“Paul Pogba back to Juventus? I think it is very difficult. There has never been a moment in which we have been close to taking him back.”
