Man Utd 'offer Paul Pogba to Juventus' in swap deal for Douglas Costa

MANCHESTER UNITED are prepared let Paul Pogba return to Juventus, in exchange for Douglas Costa, according to reports.

The Italian champions are determined to re-sign the Frenchman who returned the Old Trafford in 2016.

Pogba, 25, looked be on his way out of United if Jose Mourinho would have remained in charge with Barcelona among a host of clubs monitoring the situation.

And according to Tuttosport in Italy, the Turin giants are pushing hard to land the World Cup-winner and will allow Costa to move in the opposite direction.

Pogba has returned to form under interim boss Ole Gunner Solskjaer with four goals in four games.

After missing the FA Cup win over Reading, the midfielder is expected to play against Spurs on Sunday following his return to fitness while at United's warm-weather training camp in Dubai this week.

The Old Trafford top brass have not budged on their stance Pogba is not for sale, but the potential inclusion of the Brazilian winger as part of a deal could get them around the table for talks.

United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is demanding at least £73million.

But with Costa thrown in, Juve hope to significantly lower that figure to seal the deal.

Pogba quit United for Juve in 2012 and went on to win four Serie A titles and two Coppa Italia titles.

Costa, 28, has been a long-term target for United with reports a deal was in place for the winger before Mourinho’s exit last month.
