Juventus Identifies Potential Successor to Paul Pogba at PSG

In the wake of Paul Pogba’s suspension due to doping, Juventus Turin finds itself in need of a successor, prompting the club to turn its attention to Paris Saint-Germain. Over the past decade, Juventus has frequently looked to PSG to bolster its squad, with the likes of Kingsley Coman, Adrien Rabiot, and Leandro Paredes making the switch. This trend may continue, as Juventus seeks to fill the void left by Pogba’s absence during the upcoming transfer window.

Reports suggest that Fabian Ruiz, who has seen limited play time at the beginning of the season, has caught the eye of Juventus for several months. The Italian club’s interest in the Spanish midfielder has only intensified. According to Calcio Mercato, Massimiliano Allegri, the Juventus manager, holds Ruiz in high regard and sees him as a potential complement to Adrien Rabiot in the Juventus midfield. Allegri’s plan is to explore the possibility of a transfer or loan deal with PSG during the January transfer window. However, Ruiz’s contract with PSG, which runs until June 2027, includes a substantial salary of six million euros per month, making any potential move a challenging prospect.

Complicating matters further is Ruiz’s recent resurgence in playing time under the management of Luis Enrique, where he has emerged as a viable midfield option alongside Warren Zaïre-Emery. To the surprise of PSG supporters, the former Napoli player has been favored over Manuel Ugarte in recent matches. Consequently, Juventus will face an uphill battle if it hopes to secure Ruiz’s services mid-season. Meanwhile, Ruiz is focused on securing playing time to solidify his place in Spain’s squad for the Euro 2024, adding another layer of complexity to any potential transfer negotiations.

The situation presents a conundrum for both clubs. PSG must weigh the possibility of parting with a player who has become increasingly important to their squad, while Juventus grapples with the challenge of luring Ruiz away from PSG amidst his growing significance in the team. As the transfer window approaches, all eyes will be on the negotiations between the two clubs and the potential impact on the careers of both Paul Pogba and Fabian Ruiz. The outcome of these discussions could reshape the midfield landscape for both Juventus and PSG, setting the stage for an intriguing chapter in the ongoing saga of football transfers.
