Juventus remain keen on signing Paul Pogba are prepared to sell two players to fund a £150 million transfer for the Manchester United midfielder, according to the latest reports.

French World Cup winner Paul could still leave Old Trafford in August with the Italian and Spanish transfer markets not closing until September 2.

The 26-year-old midfielder was expected to join the Spanish club Real Madrid before the close of the English transfer market but the La Liga giants failed to agree to terms with the Red Devils.

Pogba returned to the Theatre of Dreams from the reigning Serie A champions Juventus three years ago but could be set for another switch to Turin with the Old Lady keen to secure his signature.

The Daily Express say Bianconeri are desperately trying to raise the necessary funds for the move and are trying to sell Croatian forward Mario Mandzukic.

Offloading Paulo Dybala to Thomas Tuchel’s Paris Saint-Germain is another option if Los Blancos follow through with their interest in the Brazilian superstar Neymar.

Both Mandzukic and Dybala were connected with Manchester United towards the end of the summer transfer period and Juve are prepared to sacrifice the duo to help fund a move for Paul.

It is claimed Manchester United won’t stand in the player’s way if a suitable offer is received, although Ed Woodward is a known admirer of the Frenchman.

Manchester United hero Patrice Evra, meanwhile, who played along with Pogba at Juventus, believes the star does not feel loved at Manchester United as he did in Italy.

Patrice said: ‘I don’t know what Paul’s future holds. I do know that he felt really loved in Juventus. He doesn’t feel that love in Manchester. ‘We always forget what a player is about.’

‘A player is about performing on the pitch. So kill him when he is not playing well but if he is playing well, concentrate on that.’
