Juventus have further fuelled speculation that Paul Pogba is set to return to Manchester United this summer by launching a big money bid for sought after Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain.
The Italian Champions are closing in on a £58million plus players bid for Serie A’s top scorer of last season as they look set to beat both Arsenal and Chelsea to the Argentina forward’s signature.
Reports even suggest Juventus could stretch as far as £78.2million as they look they strengthen their front line ahead of next season.
The huge figure has been seen as a sign that Juventus are already re-investing the alleged £100 million Manchester United are prepared to pay for France midfielder Paul Pogba and that they are planning for life without their star player next season.
Pogba has been heavily linked with a move away from Juventus this summer, with both United and Real Madrid being the two front runners in securing the youngster’s services.
The Red Devil’s fans hope that the latest move from the Italian reigning champions however is a signal that Pogba is destined for England, and they haven’t been quiet in sharing their opinion.

Higuain is off to Juve then, surely that means they'll sell Pogba considering they need the finances to afford the Higuain deal.

Signing Alves, Benetia, Pjanic and maybe even Higuain & Matic would certainly mean Juve are preparing for life without Pogba. Buy then sell.
