Juventus players know Paul Pogba wants to return from Manchester United this summer.
Juve are competing with Real Madrid for the Frenchman, with United insisting he won’t be allowed to leave for less than €180m.
Real, where coach Zinedine Zidane has spoken publicly of his admiration for Pogba, had been regarded favourites for the midfielder’s signature.
However, Tuttosport says as far back as May Juve’s dressing room have known their former teammate wanted to come back.
Pogba was in Italy last month for Andrea Barzagli’s birthday and he made clear to teammates that his wish was to play for Juve again.
