Juventus legend Claudio Marchisio has urged Paul Pogba to leave Manchester United and to return to Turin this summer.
The midfielder spent four years in the north-west Italy, having left Manchester United on a free transfer in 2012.
Pogba won eight trophies during his time with the Old Lady, including four Serie A titles.
It was the Frenchman’s wish to rejoin United in 2016 but the midfielder’s fortunes have been mixed at Old Trafford since his £89million return.
Pogba has been heavily linked with a return to Juventus since his departure four years ago and the Frenchman’s comments on international duty this week that he is experiencing the most ‘difficult’ period of his career have done little to dampen speculation that he could leave United.
Juventus were keen on re-signing Pogba before the pandemic hit and Marchisio, who spent 13 years at the club and played with the Frenchman for four years, says the United ace should return to the club.
Commenting on Pogba’s latest tweet, Marchisio said the Frenchman could be ‘happy again’ if he rejoined Juventus.
‘Please Paul Pogba,’ said Marchisio.
‘Come to Juventus [wink face]…you will be happy again.’
Marchisio added a white and black flag at the end, as well as a ’till the end’ hashtag.
Pogba is expected to start in France’s Nations League game against Sweden on Tuesday and he will be hoping to build up more rhythm, after getting 90 minutes against Portugal.
The midfielder’s started just two of United’s last ten matches, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer favouring Scott McTominay and Fred instead of Pogba in midfield.
