Maurizio Sarri has said he can “succeed” with Paul Pogba at Juventus, if the Italian champions re-signed him from Manchester United, according to Calciomercato.
Sarri was confirmed as Juventus’ new manager on Sunday, following his exit from Chelsea after just one season.
The Italian has reportedly already been in touch with Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici via his agent and has chatted about the many transfer targets on the club’s wishlist.
It is reported that one name that has caught Sarri’s attention more than any other is Pogba’s.
The France international used to play for Juventus and while Sarri has never worked with him, he knows of him from his time in the Premier League.
Upon learning of Juve’s interest in the Manchester United midfielder, he reportedly said: “I succeeded with [Eden] Hazard, I can also do it with a phenomenon like Pogba.”
Pogba is keen to leave Manchester United this summer as he publicly confirmed this to reporters in Japan on Sunday.
