Oct. 09, 2019
All the latest Manchester United transfer rumours and gossip including an update on the future of Paul Pogba.
Manchester United will be offered both Mario Mandzukic and Emre Can from Juventus in exchange for midfielder Paul Pogba - according to reports.
Pogba stated his desire to leave the club earlier in the summer but moves to both Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain failed to materialise meaning the World Cup winner stayed put.
United desperately want to keep hold of their star midfielder but speculation persists regarding his long-term future at Old Trafford, with reports suggesting Juventus want to resign him.
Tuttosport claim the Italian champions are interested in luring the Frenchman back to the Serie A and are willing to offer two of their players as part of the deal.
United want to strengthen their options in the final third and Juve are willing to send Mandzukic to Manchester as well as former Liverpool midfielder Emre Can.
The German left the Merseyside club last summer on a free transfer but was left out of their Champions League squad following the arrivals of Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot.
Can was infuriated by the decision which cast doubt over his future with Maurizio Sarri's men.
The last player to have featured for both United and Liverpool was Michael Owen.
Elsewhere, reports in Germany suggest that Bayern Munich forward and former Man Utd target Thomas Muller has requested to leave the German champions in January.
SportBild revealed that the 30-year-old isn't happy with the lack of first-team football with Niko Kovac preferring to use Serge Gnabry and Kingsley Coman.
Muller is now looking for a way out and with United eager to bolster their firepower, it could be the perfect time to rekindle their interest in the World Cup winner.
