Juventus ask sponsors Adidas to help fund £135m Paul Pogba transfer from Man Utd

JUVENTUS have reportedly called on sponsors Adidas to help them land Paul Pogba from Manchester United.

Corriere dello Sport claims the French midfielder is being lined up for a stunning £135million return to Turin this summer.

New boss Maurizio Sarri is already close to a mega-money deal for Ajax ace Matthijs de Ligt.

And he feels the addition of Pogba can boost Juve to Champions League glory.

However, United are demanding £135m for the World Cup winner, who they signed from Juventus in 2016 for £89m.

And that has seen the Italians turn to sponsors Adidas for assistance.

The manufacturing giants currently have an eight-year deal with Juve worth £365m.

And they also have Pogba on their books as an individual sponsor.

Juventus signing the playmaker is sure to be a huge boost for profits.

And Turin chiefs are hoping Adidas are willing to dig into their own pockets to help finance the deal.

Juventus have already landed Aaron Ramsey on a free transfer from Arsenal.

And there are sure to be even more arrivals, with Paris Saint-Germain’s Adrien Rabiot also said to have agreed a contract as a free agent.

Gianluigi Buffon has left PSG too and looks set to return to Juve on a one-year deal.
