In the last few transfer windows, if the reports are to be believed, Manchester United have had several chances to conclude a business with Juventus.

United were/are reportedly interested in Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba, while there were rumours that Juventus wanted to sign Javier Hernandez, who joined Real Madrid instead on a season long loan.

While United’s interest on Vidal have cooled down recently, the Red Devils do hold a strong interest in re-singing Pogba.

The French midfielder left Manchester United in 2012 and went on to establish himself as one of the best young midfielders in the world right now and his price has bumped up to nearly 70m, if not more.

Pogba’s was a frustrating case at United. The youngster refused to sign a new contract as he wanted a mega deal, with high wages, which United weren’t willing to afford.

The Frenchman had rejected such notions and revealed publicly that he left United because he wan’t given enough chances at Old Trafford.

Any way, it was United’s loss and Juventus’ gain.

Reports in Italy suggest that United could face another similar situation now. Juventus have joined a list of interested parties (AC Milan & PSG) in signing the young Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira.

The 19-year-old youngster born in Blegium to Brazilian parents, holds a EU passport and is ready to leave Old Trafford for pastures now.

He is comfortable in both 4-2-3-1 and 4-3-3 formations and Juventus are looking to try their luck again in signing yet another Manchester United player. 

The youngster has refused to sign a new contract that expires next summer. Like Pogba, he wants to play regular football, which United cannot offer him at the moment.
