Ex-Man Utd scout Ribalta can't see Pogba making Juventus return

Former Manchester United scout Javier Ribalta can't see Paul Pogba re-signing for Juventus.

Ribalta is now sports director of Zenit St Petersburg and has just signed released Juve veteran Claudio Marchisio.

The club have been linked with deals for Paul Pogba and PSG's Adrien Rabiot.

But Ribalta reckons Marcelo, the Real Madrid wing-back, is the man about to be captured.

"Marcelo. The other two seem impossible to me," the former Manchester United scout told Tuttosport.

"When I heard that Marchisio had terminated his contract on August 17, I immediately called Claudio.

“There was no agent: I had known him well in my five years at Juventus.

"He seemed interested and intrigued by our project from the first moment, I honestly never feared he could choose a different club."
