Italian Serie A champions Juventus face a big battle on their hands in the quest to re-sign Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba following the news that the Frenchman is not for sale despite the interest of the Italians.
This is according to the publication from popular media portal ESPN.
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has had a long-running feud with Pogba dating back to last season.
His frosty relationship with the Portuguese tactician has played a big part in his desire to move away from the club.
Paul Pogba has been dropped from the Manchester United squad for the last two Premier League games against Arsenal (2-2) and Fulham (4-1) at Old Trafford though Mourinho confirmed that the 25-year-old will start the Red Devils’ final Group H game against Spanish La Liga giants Valencia in the Champions League.
Paul Pogba joined Manchester United from Juventus in a then world record fee of £89m in 2016.
The 2018 World Cup winner has earlier left Old Trafford for Juventus on a free transfer four years earlier though the Old Lady paid a sizeable compensation fee for him since he is a graduate of the Manchester United Academy.
Apart from Juventus, French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) and Spanish champions Barcelona have also been linked with Pogba.
