Italian Serie A giants Juventus have been dealt a big transfer blow in their bid to sign Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba this summer according to Sky Sports Italia.

Juventus want to bring Pogba back to Turin but they are second favourites to Spanish La Liga club Real Madrid.

It was revealed that the player favours a move to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu over a transfer back to Turin.

Pogba was formerly on the payroll at Juventus before the Old Lady received €100m for his transfer to Manchester United in 2016.

The 26-year-old spent four hugely successful years at Juventus having joined the Italians on a free transfer in the summer of 2012.

Paul Pogba was a key player for Juventus during those four years which saw the Old Lady win four straight league titles in addition to reaching the 2015 Champions League final before they lost the trophy to Spanish champions Barcelona via a 3-1 win.

French international midfielder Pogba has publicly said that he is seeking new challenges though Manchester United are reluctant to let him leave.

The Manchester United Academy player has two years left on the five-year contract he signed when he returned to the club three years ago.
