"Pogba has said yes to Juventus." That's the headline on Corriere dello Sport. The Italian newspaper say the Manchester United midfielder could even make the switch in January.

It seems the tension between Pogba and Jose Mourinho in the Old Trafford dressing room is no longer sustainable. The player's desire is to return to the Italian club, who he refers to as his "family." 

Pogba returned to Turin recently as a United player in the Champions League. While there, he was given a warm reception by the home fans, who would be delighted to welcome him back. 

The France star did not celebrate the goal which gave United a 2-1 win and after the game was asked about a possible return to Italy: "Who knows? Now I am at United." 

In this context, the report says that Juve will make a big effort to bring him back -- and could even be prepared to do a deal this winter. 

That's more likely now given that UEFA have changed the rules, meaning that players are no longer cup-tied in the Champions League if they've played in the group stages with another side (as was the case with Philippe Coutino at Barça last season). 

Juve are also in need of a new midfielder following an injury to Emre Can -- although his knock may not be as serious as first feared.
