The 28-year-old, whose agent Mino Riola admitted that Juventus and Turin are still at the player’s heart last month, was asked by Italian TV channel Mediaset if he was ready to answer Juventus’ calls on a return to the club.

Pogba replied: ‘I always talk to my former Juventus teammates, like Paulo (Dybala). I’m in Manchester, I’ve still got a contract there for a year and then we’ll see.

‘Certainly Turin remains in his heart and he cares a lot about these things. There is a possibility of a comeback in Juventus but it also depends on Juve.
