Paul Pogba has hinted that a return to Juventus could still be on the cards amid uncertainty around his future at Manchester United.

Pogba has spent the last five years at Old Trafford after returning from Juventus in an £89million deal back in 2016. During his time in Turin, he was touted as one of the best midfielders in Europe, but has struggled to replicate that form back in England.

And with constant speculation over his contract which ends next summer, Pogba was asked if there was a chance he could be heading back to Turin.

Speaking after France's 3-2 win over Belgium on Thursday night, the 28-year-old told Sport Mediaset post-match: “I always talk with my former teammates at Juventus, [Juan] Cuadrado, [Paulo] Dybala… Now I’m a Man Utd player, I still have a year on my contract, then we will see. I want to finish the season well there, then we’ll see."

Asked whether he feels good whenever he visits Turin, Pogba added: "Yes, of course!”

Less than a month ago, Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola claimed that the Frenchman would be open to rejoining Juve, but admitted he isn't sure if the Bianconeri would be open to a deal.

“Paul Pogba is out of contract in June, so we’ll talk with Manchester and we’ll see what happens," Raiola said to Rai Sport. "Turin is still in his heart. There’s a chance that Pogba will return to Juventus, but it also depends on Juventus.”
