Juventus are willing to offer Miralem Pjanic to Manchester United in order to re-sign Paul Pogba, according to Sports Mole.

The Bianconeri are reportedly still desperate to bring Pogba back to the club and will offer the Bosnia international midfielder as a make weight in the deal.

Pogba has had a new lease of life at Old Trafford since the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as caretaker manager of the Red Devils, who have won each of their five games since Jose Mourinho was sacked last month.

The Frenchman’s long-term future at United is far from being settled, however, with both Barcelona and Juventus being touted as potential destinations for the 25-year-old next summer.

The World Cup winner won four Serie A titles with Juventus between 2012 and 2016 and recently called Turin his home.

Reports in Italy suggests that the Italian champions are still keen on a deal to bring Pogba back to the Allianz Stadium, as they look to continue their dominance in the Serie A while trying to win the UEFA Champions League for the first time in more than 20 years.

Pjanic, who has 114 appearances to his name for Juventus since joining Massimiliano Allegri’s side from Roma in 2016, is contracted to the Old Lady until the end of the 2022-23 campaign.
