Juventus have prepared a new bid for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba involving cash and a player, according to reports in Italy.
There has been intense speculation about the 26-year-old’s Old Trafford happiness and Pogba recently admitted he was considering “a new challenge somewhere else”.
Real Madrid have a long-standing interest in Pogba and Juventus are interested in bringing back the France midfielder, three years after selling him to United for a then world-record fee of £89million.
And now Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Nicolo Schira that Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici is prepared to offer ‘€60-70m’ plus striker Paulo Dybala to lure Pogba back to Turin.
Schira adds that Juventus ‘insist with Mino Raiola to return Paul Pogba’ and that Real Madrid are also looking to ‘close’ a deal for the France international, while United could demand as much as €150million.

The Sun claimed on Sunday that Pogba will make a ‘personal plea’ to Solskjaer when they meet this week after he has returned from his holiday.
The 26-year-old has ‘told all his United team-mates he wants to go’ and Pogba ‘wants the issue sorted’ before United’s first pre-season game on July 13.
