HERE ARE THE good, the bad and unlikely football moves being talked about today.

Juventus are playing an absolute blinder regarding Manchester United’s pursuit of Paul Pogba.

The Old Lady have Ed Woodward and his cohorts right where they want them and continue to toy with the embattled Premier League side.

The Guardian report that the Italian champions have told United that their €120 million bid for the French midfielder is still not enough.

The Pogba situation has a knock-on effect. Should he leave Juventus, they’ll need a new midfielder. And according to a litany of reports, they have their eye on Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic.

There are some rumours swirling around linking Belgian midfielder Axel Witsel with a move to Turin while Gonzalo Higuain’s controversial Juventus deal should be completed this week.

As much as the Pogba deal seems still some way from being completed, one transfer that is pretty much done and dusted is Joe Allen’s £13m switch to Stoke.

Meanwhile, new Sunderland boss David Moyes has his eye on one of his former players. The Scot wants Adnan Januzaj on loan for the 2016/17 season.

Hot on the heels of Kolo Toure joining, Brendan Rodgers wants another Premier League player to come to Celtic. He’s desperate for Scott Sinclair to move to Glasgow but the club have had a fourth bid turned down by Aston Villa.

Retro Deal of the Day

Michael Carrick has been at Manchester United for a decade, having joined from Tottenham in the summer of 2006.

The price was £18.6m and it’s been money very well spent.

Over a decade, the central midfielder has won a Champions League medal, 5 Premier League titles, one FA Cup, a League Cup and the 2008 Fifa Club World Cup.

Not a bad haul.
