Paul Pogba has long been linked with a move back to his former club Man Utd, and according to The Independent today, his coach at Juventus will not stand in his way if he wishes to leave the club. 

Massimilano Allegri has said it would be "difficult to say no" to a transfer of around £70-80m which has been the speculated asking price for the France international. 

Manchester United will almost certainly want the player to boost their midfield ahead of next season's campaign, but with that kind of price tag on his head Chelsea or Man City both know they could take advantage of their limitless funds and make a swoop. 

A player of Pogba's undeniable ability could be the difference between the teams next season. The 22 year old defensive midfielder has netted 20 times since joining for Juve in 2012, and become a fan favourite at the Serie A club.
