Report: Manchester United in talks to sign midfielder

Paul Pogba

Manchester United are locked in talks with Juventus for midfielder Paul Pogba, according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.

The Sky Italia and Guardian journalist suggests United are working on the deal to bring Pogba back to Old Trafford and will soon send an official proposal to Juventus.

However, the Italian champions are believed to be keen to keep hold of the French international.

Pogba, who played for France in the European Championship final against Portugal last weekend, has been heavily linked with a return to United this summer.

It looks like the English giants are prepared to do everything possible to secure his services in this transfer window, so it’d be extremely difficult for Juventus to keep him in Turin beyond the summer.

After Real Madrid reportedly dropped out of the race for Pogba due to their inability to compete financially with United, it appears as though the Red Devils don’t have any competition for Pogba’s signature.

United are thought to be prepared to break the world transfer record to sign Pogba and it seems like the only obstacle left is convincing Juventus to sanction the sale.
