Juventus will offer Manchester United Miralem Pjanic and cash in exchange for Paul Pogba in a bid to prize the France midfielder away from Old Trafford.

The Old Lady sold Pogba to United two year ago for £89m, but with the player reportedly unhappy working under Jose Mourinho, both the Italians and Barcelona are pushing late in the window.

Whilst both clubs can sign Pogba until the end of the month, United will only have until Thursday to find a replacement.

Juve will make it easier for United by offering star midfielder Miralem Pjanic and cash, yet to be determined, in exchange for Pogba, claim Tuttosport.

Quite whether that will be enough remains to be seen, though Mourinho’s current grumbles may quickly turn into a complete meltdown should United allow his star man to depart.

Juventus won’t take no for an answer despite Man United dismissing Barcelona’s interest

Manchester United’s fight to keep Paul Pogba will go right to the wire, with club legend Rio Ferdinand backing the Reds to win it — and then sign Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld.

Juventus want to take the World Cup-winning Frenchman back to Turin, where he helped them to four league titles, two Italian Cups and a place in the Champions League Final. But in a public message to the Old Trafford giants ‘ executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, Ferdinand urged his former club to stay strong.

The former United star tweeted: “Don’t you dare allow this ED… #MUFC is Pogba’s home!! Silence these rumours ASAP & get @AlderweireldTob through the door.”

Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, remains determined to get the superstar midfielder out of Old Trafford for a second time in six years.
