Juventus are at the centre of this summer’s transfer market following the signing of Gonzalo Higuain and the potential sale of Paul Pogba.
While Juventus fans don’t want Pogba to leave, reports in Italy say a deal worth €115m has been done and Manchester United fans are eagerly anticipating an announcement.
Nothing is official at this stage but you have to wonder how the relationship is between Juventus and Pogba with all these rumours. This morning, Juventus’ official account sent this tweet out which led to people questioning whether it was a shot aimed at Pogba:

Accompanying a picture of training, the caption read: “Some are at work in the pool, while for others… the hard yards await. #FinoAllaFine #ForzaJuve #JuveOnTour”

Is that what Juventus were referring to? It’s certainly easy to interpret it in that way and Juventus should/would have known that before they published the picture, so take from it what you will.
The unfortunate reality about the Pogba situation is that it’s very much descended into a transfer saga. There’s cryptic messages from Pogba, Adidas and Juventus floating about now; all we want to have is a conclusion to it, hopefully with Pogba holding up a United shirt, and the sooner that happens the better.
