Manchester United have concluded plans to turn down a big bid from Italian Serie A champions Juventus for one of their star players.

The Italians are rumoured to be plotting a £125m transfer for Red Devils midfielder Paul Pogba but the club will resist the club-record bid for the French midfielder.

The said fee would be a club-record fee for outgoing transfers at Manchester United as well as incoming transfers at Italian champions Juventus.

It would have been the fourth most expensive transfer after the Paris Saint Germain (PSG) duo of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe as well as Barcelona forward Philippe Coutinho.

According to the publication from the Daily Telegraph via Caughtoffside, Manchester United will repel the transfer bid from Juventus for Paul Pogba and that senior club officials want to build a new-look team around him.

Pogba, 25, has been strongly linked with a return to Italy with Serie A champions Juventus especially when he was at loggerheads with Jose Mourinho.

His position on a possible Manchester United exit has changed following the dismissal of Jose Mourinho from his post.

Paul Pogba spent four successful years at Juventus (2012 to 2016) before returning to Manchester United in a then world record fee of £89m.

The Red Devils Academy graduate had earlier signed for the Old Lady on a free transfer from Manchester United in 2012.
