MANCHESTER UNITED star Paul Pogba is once again being eyed by his former club Juventus, according to reports.
Italian outlet CalcioMercato claim Juve avoided investing in a new midfielder in January ahead of a summer swoop for the Frenchman.

The report adds that Pogba is the dream for the Serie A giants, but Lyon playmaker Houssem Aouar has been listed as a potential back-up.
World Cup winner Pogba returned to Old Trafford in 2016 from Juventus but has been linked numerous times with a move back.

SunSport previously reported that United are willing to let the 27-year-old leave in a player-swap deal – but not for Aaron Ramsey or Douglas Costa.
Pogba has just 18 months remaining on his current contract and his second spell at the Theatre of Dreams looks to be coming to a certain end.
And he later admitted Pogba was more likely to leave in the summer as it’s hard to do ‘top deals’ in January.
Raiola also labelled Man Utd as ‘greedy’ and slammed them for losing their identity late last year.
The France International’s older brother Mathias, 30 – who plays for Spanish side Racing Murcia – most recently stirred the pot.

He told Spanish TV show El Chiringuito: “He has a year left on his contract. I don’t know [if he will stay until then]. I can’t help you right now.
“The only thing I can say is if United want money, they have to sell him now. That’s the only thing I can say. If not, he’ll go for free.
“I haven’t heard anything about him renewing his contract.”
