Juventus are reportedly offer three players to Manchester United so that they can land Paul Pogba.

According to Corriere della Serra, Juventus are willing to offer Douglas Costa, Joao Cancelo and Blaise Matuidi to Manchester United to bring back the Frenchman.

The report from Corriere della Serra also states that Manchester United have kept the asking price for Pogba at €167 million and the only way Juve can buy Pogba is by selling some of their own players. Matuidi, Cancelo and Costa are all fine players in their respective positions although Costa had a forgettable 18/19 season, scoring just once and assisting twice in 25 appearances. A hamstring injury cut his season short.

Joao Cancelo has established himself as one of the best right-backs in the world and had a fine 18/19 season for the Bianconeri, scoring a goal and providing 5 assists in 34 appearances across all competitions.

Blaise Matuidi is one of the finest midfielders in the Serie A at the moment. The Frenchman scored and assisted thrice in 42 appearances across all competitions last season.

All three players are highly useful or Manchester United. With the possibility of Romelu Lukaku leaving the club, the Red Devils could easily use some more attacking prowess. Ander Herrera already left the club and with Pogba leaving, Blaise Matuidi can be a useful central midfielder who can make tireless runs up front and can be defensively efficient.

Manchester United already have Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot at right-back while Ashley Young is a back-up option. Hence, the addition of Joao Cancelo might be a tad redundant.

Nevertheless, this could be a deal Manchester United should consider as unlike Real Madrid, Juventus are offering some players in return.
