Manchester United are reportedly set to offer Juan Mata to Juventus in order to seal the transfer of Paul Pogba.
Jose Mourinho is determined to sign the France international, whom he was also keen on during his time in charge of Chelsea.
Pogba, 23, continues to shine as one of the very best midfielders in world football, and could command a mammoth transfer fee.
According to ESPN, United may have to pay around £65million to re-sign their former player, but Mata joining in exchange is also on the table.
Mourinho sold the Spanish playmaker to United when he was still at Chelsea, and it is little surprise that he doesn’t feature in his plans at Old Trafford either.
Still, the main stumbling block over the deal at the moment is Pogba’s desire to wait for an approach from Real Madrid.
