Juventus will wait until a new head coach is appointed to discuss the possibility of an audacious attempt to re-sign Paul Pogba from Manchester United, says sporting director Fabio Paratici.

United have already allowed Ander Herrera - a player admired by Maradona - to leave for PSG on a free transfer and Maradona has also offered a candid assessment of midfielder Paul Pogba, blasting the Frenchman as work shy.

Maradona said this when he spoke about Manchester United in an interview with FourFourTwo. 'I know they sell lots of shirts around the world, but they need to win trophies, too.

Pogba's future under Ole Gunner Solskjaer has been a subject of much speculation this summer. "I can do that for them".

"Manchester United used to be my favourite English team for so long".
