Juventus Director Confirms Move for Rabiot & Admits Love for Pogba.

Juventus "love" Paul Pogba and have made a move for Adrien Rabiot, according to the club's sporting director Fabio Paratici.

Pogba has been heavily linked with a return move to Juve, and Real Madrid are also reportedly interested in the Manchester United star.

Rabiot, who has not played a competitive game at senior level in 2019, is out of contract at Paris Saint-Germain, And Paratici has confirmed the Old Lady are keen on signing the Frenchman.

"They are two great players," Paratici told a news conference held for Maurizio Sarri's official presentation as Juve coach.

"Pogba is a Manchester United player. We love him, we made him grow up but he is a Manchester United player.

"We are making an attempt for Rabiot, as with all the players we have in mind. We discussed them with Sarri and soon we will take a decision."

Paratici also lavished praise on Maurizio Sarri, saying the 60-year-old is the perfect man to lead Juve.

"His style of play was not crucial in our reason to change our coach. We have chosen Maurizio because we believe he's the best coach for Juve in this moment - as, five years ago, was Allegri and, eight years ago, was [Antonio] Conte," he added.

"These are different types of coaches with different characteristics - they could even be opposites, working with very different styles.

"He has demonstrated his great skills in Italy and the Premier League and at European level as well. We believe he's the best option for Juve."
