    He was subbed off and subsequently benched because he was going through a period of dire form. We can speculate on the reasons why, but there’s no denying he was terrible in every regard and can have no complaints about losing his place.

    Give me a break, that is just Juventus fan being an absolute muppet!

    The real big question here, what will happen to Pogba if he win the world cup and put a midfield masterclass performance against Croatia. Will he be generally regarded as world class player then?

    There were indeed some strong rumors about a Pogback 2.0, and I think that would have been our big transfer if we hadn’t got Ronaldo. At this point I don’t think the deal will go through.
    Several insiders confirm that the buyback clause does exist, and I wouldn’t be surprised. Raiola himself said that at Juve Pogba had a clause in his favour saying that he could have chosen freely when and where to go.

    Btw, I am reading several people saying “if it was done in May certainly Di Marzio would have told something”.
    Di Marzio is a very reliable source, but in the sense that he speaks only when he’s 200% certain about something and when it comes to Juve he hardly has any scoop. He arrives often late and especially this year he COMPLETELY missed the Ronaldo deal (when everybody was starting to talk about it he continued saying that there was nothing) and also with Cancelo (according to him it was just a facade to make pressure for Darmian). So when it comes to Juve don’t always trust him.

    And just to clarify again, I think he will stay at United this summer.

    You are being a bit pedantic and arguing semantics, is really all I’m saying.

    Tevez, Dybala - second striker? No.10?... Meh, same thing. They would be the ‘creative no.10’ referred to. And the ‘unique AM/ LM role in a 3-5-2’ would be the no.8 - left-of-centre midfield - position.

    Yeah, post link and/or sources or go away.

    The idea we inserted any clause in a players contract that we just paid a 100m € for, nevermind a 60m € one, is so monumentally stupid it's genuinely mind boggling how can anyone even believe that.

    It isn’t if you feel 100% confident that the player has no interest in going back and that the club that just sold it to you cannot pay his wage.

    The most thrust worthy source is of course L’Equipe, then there are rumors from insiders that post regularly on Juve’s forum (Vecchiasignora). I am talking about people who anticipated us Cancelo since March and Ronaldo a week before that all the fuzz started.
    Of course, it is RUMORS, feel free to believe it or not.

    All I am saying is that if it’s true (IF), I wouldn’t be surprised at all knowing Raiola (and again knowing for a fact that we had a similar clause in his contract)

    Man for a moment forget all this ITK stuff, just think logically and tell if any club will sign a player for 100 million and insert 60 million buy back clause? If you really believe that, then you have to reconsider how you think logically.

    Of course it is. What are you even talking about. "I want too secure and asset and will pay a premium for it, but sure let me leave a clause in, that will enable that asset to leave at any time, for almost a half of what I initially paid for it, because I feel confident". That sounds believable to you?

    Additionally you sources seem to be an ITK and a newspaper that Pogba himself publicly criticized several times. You didn't even post the link to the article.
