Aaron Ramsey for sale with Juventus ‘trying to raise funds’ for raid on Man Utd star Paul Pogba – The Sun
JUVENTUS are tipped to offload Aaron Ramsey to find a huge bid for Paul Pogba.
Manchester United midfielder Pogba confirmed his return to fitness after injury when finally teaming up with Bruno Fernandes in the first of two 60-minute practice games against West Brom on Friday.
And although Juve's financial power has taken a huge hit from the coronavirus pandemic, they have not ruled out flogging players in an attempt to re-sign the French world Cup winner.
Ex-Arsenal star Ramsey tops that list of likely big-earning departures.
The Wales hero, 29, has endured a patchy first season in Italy despite wages upwards of £400,000 a week.
And after reports in the past 24 hours that Juventus are keen to sell Ramsey this summer, talk is spiralling that the Serie A champions are still eyeing a potential offer for Pogba in the same transfer window.
RABIOT OUT TOO?
Italian football journalist Nima Tavallaey told talkSPORT: “They’ve done this kind of thing before, especially when they had Beppe Marotta, the former sporting director who is now over at Inter.
“He likes to sign up players on a free transfer and make capital gains.
"They’ve done it with Emre Can, and now they’ve done it with Aaron Ramsey… they got [Adrien] Rabiot on a free transfer as well.
“If they don’t end up working out they can use them as part of deals to sign other players and they can cash in on them, which balances the books as they wouldn’t have paid any transfer fees for them.
“It wouldn’t surprise me if they used Rabiot and Ramsey to either raise funds to bring Paul Pogba back or use them directly in negotiations with United to bring him back.
“Let’s not beat around the bush – that’s the main target Juventus have this summer.”
French World Cup winner Pogba, 27, rejoined United from Juve for £89million four years ago.
