Juventus close in on Di Maria and Paul Pogba double transfer swoop

The Serie A giants are gradually closing in the duo's signature according to reports in Italy.

Juventus are reportedly closing in on Paul Pogba and Angel Di Maria signings

Paul Pogba and Angel Di Maria are expected to complete a move to Serie A giants Juventus, this summer.

Both the France and Argentina internationals are out of contract with Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain, respectively, in June and are available on free transfers.

Argentinian winger Di Maria had already confirmed his exit from the French giants in PSG's final home game of the season, while Pogba was always expected to part ways with the Manchester giants when his current deal expires.

Serie A giants Juventus are currently in pole position to sign Pogba - who had reportedly turned down a move to Premier league champions Man City.

Pogba has also been offered a three-year deal worth around £10million-a-season by the Serie A club as per Gazzetta dello Sport.

According to Gazzetta, the 29-year-old French midfielder could also be announced as a Juve player later this week.

Pogba who rejoined United from the Old lady, for a then world record fee of £89million in 2016, has endured a disappointing second spell at Old Trafford and is among several players who are expected to depart the club in the summer.

Juventus are also looking to bring Di Maria to the club, with the 34-year-old Argentine winger reportedly offered similar terms to Pogba.

Di Maria has spent the last seven years of his career at PSG, who initially snapped him up from Manchester United as well for £44m in August 2015.

The 34-year-old has been a vital member of the Ligue 1 champions success in recent years and also Mauricio Pochettino's team this season but confirmed earlier this month that he would be leaving the club in the summer.
