Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot ‘set to be SOLD by Juventus’ to free up transfer funds for Man Utd’s Paul Pogba’


JUVENTUS will fund a summer move for Paul Pogba by selling Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot, according to reports.

The Old Lady have had a poor campaign, already out of the Champions League and trailing Serie A leaders Inter Milan by ten points.

Manchester United star Pogba, 28, made his name in Turin between 2012 and 2016, before returning to Old Trafford for £89million.

But, set to have just a year remaining on his Red Devils deal, the Frenchman may be up for grabs come the end of the season.

And according to Calciomercato, Juventus are willing to ship out two regulars in order to fund the switch.

Ramsey, and Pogba’s international team-mate Rabiot, are both claimed to earn around £120,000-a-week at Allianz Stadium, altough Ramsey also pocketed a substantial signing on fee when he joined for free from Arsenal.

But in order to afford Pogba, partly given the enormous salary paid to Cristiano Ronaldo, the duo will have to be moved on.

Remarkably, West Ham are currently favourites to land Welshman Ramsey’s signature, while Everton and Liverpool have also been linked with the 30-year-old.

The Toffees are also rumoured to be fans of Rabiot, who manager Carlo Ancelotti handed a senior pro debut to while at Paris Saint-Germain.

Manchester City are also in the race to sign the 25-year-old.

Rabiot would pull no punches should he go to City, however, if his recent outburst while on international duty is anything to go by.

The midfielder, who refused to be on the standby list after missing out on Didier Deschamps’ World Cup squad in 2018, questioned the commitment of his team as France drew 1-1 with Ukraine.

He huffed: “We knew what to expect against Ukraine. They were here for the counter attacks. All the teams in our group are going to play like this. We have to adapt.

“If it did not work it is because we didn’t give everything on the pitch.

“We should have put more intensity. With the players we have we must be able to play in any system. It’s a question of method and of willpower.”
