Man Utd's Pereira: Pogba urging me to join Juventus

Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira has revealed that Paul Pogba has been speaking to him regarding a potential move to Juventus.

The 19-year old Brazil U20 international is considering a move away from Old Trafford in the summer as he strives for regular first team game time and has suggested that former United youth academy teammate Pogba is imploring him to follow his pathway to Turin.

"Everyone knows that Juve are a great club," Pereira told Tuttosport.

"I have spoken with Pogba many times, he is a good friend and he told me that I would be well served in moving to Turin, both personally and professionally, two important things for me.

"At this time I'm tied to United. My agent is evaluating the offers that have arrived, including that of Juventus, but it's no secret. Just as it's no secret that I have turned down the offers made by my current club.

"I know the Italian league and I certainly would not be disappointed to play there as it is one of the best leagues. But I have not taken a decision yet."

Pereira is also a target for Dutch clubs PSV Eindhoven and Feyenoord while French giants Paris-Saint Germain have also been credited with interest recently.
