Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is interested in returning "home" to Juventus later this year, according to his agent Mino Raiola.

Paul Pogba's agent Mino Raiola has admitted that the Manchester United midfielder "would not mind going back" to former club Juventus.

The Italian giants were rumoured to have made their interest known in Pogba last summer when his time at Old Trafford appeared to be coming to an end.

Real Madrid were also linked and both teams are reportedly still keen to strike a deal for the France international ahead of next season.

Pogba won four Serie A titles in four years during his previous spell with Juventus, and Raiola says a return "home" to Italy is possible in July or August.

"Italy is like home for Paul. He would not mind going back to Juve but we will see what will happen after the Euros," he told reporters.

"Paul wants to play at the best level but he can't escape by Manchester United if they are in a difficult situation."

United are supposedly after £148m for Pogba, who has featured just eight times this season because of injury issues.
