After Paul Pogba finalized his record transfer to Manchester United, Juventus have directed their attention towards Real Madrid’s Isco to fill the void.
Life after Paul Pogba begins for Juventus.
The highly sought after midfielder moved back to Manchester United for a transfer fee of €110m. The Bianconeri, having already dominated the mercato, now need to reinvest in a replacement for the Frenchman, and have directed their efforts towards Spain.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Juventus have Real Madrid’s Isco at the top of their list and are expected to submit an offer to the La Liga giants in the coming hours. The negotiations are expected to begin today or tomorrow in order to find an agreement for the former Malaga man. While Isco remains a priority for the Bianconeri, he is not the only member of the Merengues midfield that they are targeting.
Mateo Kovacic could also be an option as manager Zinedine Zidane does not consider him a key component to their plans.
Juventus will receive the sum of the Pogba money between two financial years but are expected to act quickly to ensure the void left behind in the midfield does not go unfilled.
