Manchester United exiles Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard BOTH look to be rejoining former clubs… with the French star returning to Juventus and West Ham circling for his teammate
- Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard are both out of contracts with Man United next month
- Pogba looks closer to returning to Italian giants Juventus
- Meanwhile, Jesse Lingard could return to West Ham on a free transfer
Paul Pogba is set to return to Juventus after the Italian club made an official offer to the Manchester United star worth £30million.
Juventus are confident they will win the race for Pogba, despite Paris Saint-Germain preparing a final contract offer to snatch him from under their noses when his United deal expires.
And fellow United exile Jesse Lingard could also return to a former club, with West Ham making an offer to the winger to give him a competitive edge.

More clubs are expected to court the upcoming free agent in the coming weeks once budgets become clearer, but David Moyes has made an early move to convince Lingard that he is wanted back at the London Stadium, where the 29-year-old The birthday boy spent the second half of last season on a rental basis.
Moyes has also discussed possible moves for Hull City’s Keane Lewis-Potter and Rennes’ 26-year-old Moroccan defender Nayef Aguerd.
Juventus and Pogba have yet to reach a full agreement, but all sides are positive that a deal is close and will be reached. The France international has been offered a three-year deal by the Serie A club, worth almost £10 million per season.

PSG will likely make one last-ditch effort to convince Pogba to return to his homeland, but it remains to be seen whether he can be persuaded to reconsider.
The return of the French World Cup winner to his country’s capital would be of great commercial value for PSG.
But as it stands, Pogba – who could also be the subject of late Real Madrid interest – is poised for a return to Turin.
Sportsmail revealed this month how Manchester City were interested in signing Pogba for free in what would have been one of the most dramatic transfers in English football history.
The 29-year-old has seriously considered the move, but has decided that his next move must be abroad.
