Paul Pogba is prepared to wait before making a final decision over returning to Juventus and is set to consider proposals from Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid before finalising his next club, The Telegraph reports.

The France midfielder, 29, officially left Manchester United as a free agent earlier this week and Juve have made the early running for him to come back to the club after leaving in 2016 for a Premier League record £89m.     

While the Italians are frontrunners for Pogba, PSG and Real Madrid are still in the race and he is understood to be in no rush to make a decision on where he will play next season after six years in England. 

Pogba has spent time in America since the end of the season and his heel injury that ruled him out for the final part of the campaign means he is not currently with the France squad on Nations League duty. But he has until next month before pre-season starts at clubs, giving him time to consider his options. 


Juventus offered Paul Pogba a net salary of about €8m (£6.8m) a year, plus potentially lucrative bonuses, as they try to persuade him to return, The Guardian reports.

Pogba’s exit from Manchester United was confirmed on Wednesday and Juventus are ready to give him a three or four-year contract. Talks have reached an advanced stage but the midfielder has not provided an answer regarding the proposal.

The 29-year-old has rejected interest from Manchester City and received an offer from Paris Saint-Germain but it remains to be seen whether Leonardo’s departure as the French club’s sporting director will affect their pursuit.
