Juventus chief Giuseppe Marrotta has opened the door to a potential return for former stars Alvaro Morata and Paul Pogba, according to Mirror Sport.

Pogba left Turin for Manchester United in the summer of 2016 in a club-record and then World-record £89million deal. While Alvaro Morata moved from Real Madrid to Chelsea last summer, having spent some time in Turin.

However, after a decent first season under Mourinho at Old Trafford, Pogba has struggled for consistency this term, and  is under scrutiny after a sub-par season and a tumultuous relationship with the gaffer.

And Spaniard, Morata whose season started quite well for Chelsea lost form since the turn of the year, and has struggled to have much impact on Antonio Conte’s Blues.

When asked about the possibility of Pogba or Alvaro Morata returning to Juve, Marrotta refused to rule it out.

“Personally, I don’t believe in returns, but there are exceptions,” he said.

“These are two great players and good lads, but to be honest, they are mirages for us.”

Juventus have also been linked with a swoop for Pogba’s teammate Matteo Darmian, but Marrotta says no contact has been made.
“Matteo Darmian? No, nothing has been done there,” he added.
