Juventus plot huge double swoop for Marcelo and Paul Pogba

The transfer window for all of Europe's big five leagues is now closed, but that doesn't stop Transfer Talk from rummaging through the remains of the summer window to scrounge up the earliest bit of gossip about who will be moving where come January.

Juventus plot Marcelo-Pogba double swoop

Juventus pulled off the coup of the summer, signing Cristiano Ronaldo away from Real Madrid. The sequel is already in the works, apparently, as Juve will try to re-sign Paul Pogba from Manchester United and lure Marcelo away from Madrid, says Tuttosport.

It'd be a familiar route for Pogba, who of course began his career with United, then went to Juventus for four seasons, then returned to Old Trafford in 2016. While the Manchester Evening News reports that Juventus midfielder Blaise Matuidi has "joked" with Pogba about the United midfielder's Champions League return to Turin in November, the paper also notes that Matuidi shares the same agent as Pogba in Mino Raiola.

As for Marcelo, it might be that his close relationship with Ronaldo helps persuade the left-back to move to Italy.
