MANCHESTER UNITED are interested in swapping Paul Pogba with Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo, according to reports.
The rumoured deal between the Premier League giants and the Italian sidecould see the Portugal captain return to Old Trafford after 12 years.
According to Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport, both clubs are interested in re-signing their former stars.
United are believed to want some cash for Pogba, however, and Ronaldo's big wage demands could be a stumbling block.
Ronaldo, 36, won three Premier League titles, two League Cups, the Champions League and the FA Cup during his six-year spell at United.
World Cup winner Pogba, 28, enjoyed success at Juventus between 2012 and 2016, four Serie A titles and two Italian Cups.
Both players have struggled at their current clubs, with Ronaldo failing to win Serie A this season and Pogba not lifting domestic silverware since 2017.
The reported deal could depend on returning Juve manager Massimiliano Allegri, who is rumoured to be willing to let the Portuguese star go.
Reports suggest the Italian coach asked Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli to get rid of Ronaldo around the time he was sacked in 2019.
And Allegri may want to bring Pogba back to Turin, with plenty of reports linking the French with a return.

Pogba has one year left on his Old Trafford contract and it's still unclear whether he will commit his future to the Red Devils.
Even if Ronaldo is allowed to leave Italy this summer, United may struggle to re-sign the player with Paris Saint-Germain believed to be interested.
The Ligue 1 side are said to be concerned about losing star striker Kylian Mbappe, whose current deal expires next summer.
PSG may decide to cash in on the 22-year-old this summer if he doesn't renew his contract, leaving them in need of a new superstar.
