Juventus end their interest in Paul Pogba leaving Real Madrid with free run at signing £150m Man United star
The French World Cup winner has made clear his intentions to leave United but a return to Juventus, where he spent four successful years between 2012 and 2016, won’t be happening.
Though Pogba was open to a return to Turin but his agent Mino Raiola has been notified by Juve’s vice-chairman Pavel Nedved that they intend to pursue other targets.

It leaves Real as the strong favourites to make Pogba their latest ‘Galactico’ signing if they can match United’s valuation and Pogba’s wage demands.
Juventus have already bolstered their midfield this summer with the free signings of Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal and Adrien Rabiot from Paris Saint-Germain.
They are also hopeful of concluding a deal for the Fiorentina playmaker Federico Chiesa, who is keen to join the Italian champions.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is adamant that Pogba is going nowhere this summer
Pogba reported for United’s pre-season tour of Australia, Singapore and China on Sunday morning despite fears that he wouldn’t show up in order to force through his move away.
He has been training with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his squad in Perth ahead of two friendly matches there against Perth Glory and Leeds United.
Real are now the only club in the running for Pogba, who would relish the opportunity to play under his compatriot Zinedine Zidane.
