Paul Pogba is seemingly unhappy at Manchester United and he has been linked to a return to Juventus next season. The French midfielder will become a free agent in the next few weeks and Serie A appears to be open to his return during the summer transfer window.

McKennie to be sacrificed

This means that Juventus would likely have to let go of one midfielder to make space for the arrival of Pogba and Weston McKennie could be the one sacrificed. According to multiple reports, negotiations between the Serie A side and Pogba have started and an agreement could be reached very soon.

The American midfielder joined the Old Lady in the summer of 2020 and he’s had two successful seasons. This year he scored four goals and made a total of 28 appearances across all competitions with Juventus, earning the trust of Massimiliano Allegri, who took over the managerial job this season.

The Texas native has been linked to several clubs since the January transfer window because he broke the coronavirus protocols with club and country during the pandemic. This didn’t sit well with Allegri and the people in charge and they were willing to accept serious offers during the winter window.

According to transfermarkt, McKennies value is close to $30 million. Earlier this year it was reported that Tottenham Hotspur had placed a bid to sign him, but in the end the offer was not accepted by Juventus.
