Manchester United fans have been handed a major transfer boost after Italian Serie A giants Juventus revealed that there would no transfer for influential midfielder Paul Pogba.
The Italians have repeatedly been linked with a summer move for the Frenchman but that’s unlikely partly due to the admission from the Juve sporting director.
Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici told Italian media portal La Gazzette dello Sport that the club won’t be making a summer move for Paul Pogba before adding that it would be difficult to prise the French World Cup winner away from Manchester United.
Paul Pogba has found a new lease of life under interim Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer since the Norwegian tactician replaced the sacked Jose Mourinho.
Pogba has scored eight goals in addition to five assists in his nine games under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
This is in stark contrast to his form under Jose Mourinho who dropped him on several occasions in the last weeks of his managerial reign at Old Trafford.
Pogba and Mourinho had a frosty relationship before the exit of the Portuguese manager.
Paul Pogba joined Manchester United from Juventus in a world-record deal worth £89m in the summer of 2016 four years after he left for the Old Lady on a free transfer.
