Cristiano Ronaldo could reportedly return to Manchester United in a swap deal with Paul Pogba.

Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, announced on Monday that his client will be leaving the Red Devils in due course.

One potential destination for the Frenchman is Juventus, the club where he grew into a world-class player.

According to The Independent’s Miguel Delaney, Pogba could return to Turin in a swap deal involving Cristiano Ronaldo.

He told The Football Ramble’s On The Continent show: “Talking to people during the week because I’ve been doing something on the Paul Pogba situation, which is connected to Ronaldo, and the fact that Juventus might actually be interested in a swap.

“It’s not impossible. Connected to all that was the view that ultimately, Juventus are trying to install this collective idea of football. They tried it with Sarri, now they’re trying do it with Pirlo, but that is almost impossible to do while Ronaldo is there, because the way he plays, he just doesn’t really fit into that collective approach.

“Now, obviously that was not a problem at all when he was at his absolute maximum, but now it means, even more than ever, Juventus have to play a certain way. Then there’s that kind of dilemma, where a manager will, in the long term, want to install a more collective system, but while they’re doing that, it’s such an easy solution.

“We’ll get the ball to Cris, but the problem is, it becomes difficult to wean players off that.”
