Paul Pogba has reportedly made a phone call to new Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri urging the Italian to sign him.
Tuttosport say that Pogba is "desperate" to return to Turin and has already been in touch with Sarri, issuing a 'come and get me' please to let him know how much he wants the move.
Last week, Pogba publicly admitted his interest in taking on a new challenge while in Tokyo as part of an Adidas promotional shoot.
"For me, I have been for three years in Manchester and have been doing great; some good moments and some bad moments, like everybody," Pogba said as per bEIN Sports.
"After this season and everything that happened this season, with my season being my best season as well... I think for me it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else."
Real Madrid continue to be linked, while a return to Juve has also been mooted. After joining on a free transfer in 2012, Pogba won four Serie A titles on the trot as well as two Coppa Italias in four seasons in Italy before sealing an £89 million return to United.

It appears as though he wants to be back playing his football with the Old Lady but according to James Ducker from The Telegraph, United value him at £160 million and that could well price Pogba out of his move.
Pogba, despite all the speculation, is expected to be back at United's AON training complex for pre-season next Monday - while the Daily Mail report that United are prepared to offer the midfielder 'up to £500,000 a week' in a bid to persuade him to stay.
