Premier League giants Manchester United are reportedly keen to hang on to the services of their prized asset when the transfer window reopens in two weeks time.

The Daily Express claim that the Red Devils have already made a decision not to sell French midfielder Paul Pogba following a reported incoming bid of around £125m from Italian Serie A giants Juventus.

An earlier report from the Daily Star had revealed that Italian champions Juventus are eyeing a £125m bid for the talented midfielder.

The said transfer fee would have made him the fourth most expensive player on the world football stage behind the Paris Saint Germain (PSG) duo of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe as well as Barcelona playmaker Philippe Coutinho.

Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola is said to be negotiating his possible return to Italy after he became frustrated with life at Old Trafford.

The 25-year-old was involved in several bust-ups with Jose Mourinho before he was sacked as the Manchester United manager on Tuesday morning.

The Portuguese tactician stripped him of his duties as the Manchester United vice-captain and also dropped him from the starting XI for the last three games in the Premier League.

His last league start was the goalless draw with London club Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Matchweek 14.
