REVEALED: Pogba put in personal transfer call to Juventus

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba was personally driving a return to Juventus last month, it has been revealed.

Pogba was struggling for form earlier this season under Jose Mourinho, but under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer he has been resurgent.

The United star has been playing with a swagger ever since Mourinho was sacked back in December.

But Tuttosport says that, despite Mourinho's exit, the United star is still eager to leave Old Trafford behind.

It is claimed he made a phone call to Juventus in January admitting that he is eager to return.

However, Juventus ultimately opted against pursuing their former midfielder.

But the Serie A giants could use Douglas Costa as a bargaining tool in any potential negotiations.
