David Moyes has held talks with Juventus’s chief transfer negotiator after planning a bold double move for Paul Pogba and Arturo Vidal.
The Manchester United manager met boardroom boss Beppe Marotta after Juventus’s game at Cagliari on Sunday and discussed the possibility of signing either, or both, of his top two targets.

After travelling to Cagliari with first-team coach Jimmy Lumsden to see Juve roar back from 1-0 down to win 4-1 and maintain their lead at the top of Serie A, Moyes outlined his transfer plans with the Turin club’s top administrator.

But by the time he headed back to Manchester, he was forced to accept he would have his work cut out to entice Pogba back to Old Trafford and would have to wait until the summer to capture Vidal.
Zinedine Zidane said Pogba’s departure from United 18 months ago was ‘the biggest mistake of Sir Alex Ferguson’s career’, but Moyes is clinging to the hope he can rectify it, despite the cost.

Paris Saint-Germain’s interest and willingness to offer Pogba a route back to his home city is likely to push the asking price beyond £40million. He is understood to favour PSG but has not ruled out a second spell at Old Trafford.
