The barometer of the bookmakers, who in this stop phase carefully monitor the market winds, focuses decisively on the black and white shore.
The Frenchman, who has only played 7 Premier games this year due to a double ankle injury, seems to be keen to end his experience with Manchester United.
The problem, if anything, as Paratici has hinted in the past few days, will be to convince some Juventus players to make the reverse journey, given that United has recently lost much of its appeal (source Ansa).
