Paul Pogba has had ‘positive talks’ regarding a summer move to Juventus, according to reports.
The Manchester United star faces an uncertain future with his contract at Old Trafford due to expire this summer.
With no agreement in place on an extension, it looks like a second United exit is highly likely with a host of elite European clubs interested.
According to various reports, Italian giants Juventus are leading the hunt to re-sign the France international as they seek to bring him back to Turin…on a free transfer…again.
It is suggested that Rafaela Pimenta, who took over from Mino Raiola as his representative after his passing, flew to Italy to discuss a move.
If a deal is agreed, it will be the second time Juventus have signed Pogba on a free transfer after bringing the 19-year-old back to the club in 2009.
And, if Pogba moves to Juve this summer, he may not be the only former United star to enter.
Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed that Angel Di Maria will be leaving the club at the end of the season, with club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi urging fans to give him the farewell he deserves.

Di Maria moved to the French capital on a £44million transfer in 2015, just a season after signing for United from Real Madrid in a deal worth around £60million sterling.
While he failed in the Premier League, he was anything but at PSG, having won 18 trophies in seven seasons including five Ligue 1 titles.
Al-Khelaifi said: “Angel Di Maria left an indelible mark on the history of the club. He will be remembered by supporters as someone with an irreproachable attitude, who defended our colors with unfailing commitment.
“I would ask the whole Paris Saint-Germain family to come to the Parc des Princes tomorrow to pay him the tribute he deserves.”
The Argentina international has also been heavily linked with a move to Juventus at the end of his contract.
If Juve can also secure a deal for Di Maria, there’s no doubt the summer will have been a success for the club.
Since losing Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United last year, Juve have struggled in the league having only managed to secure fourth place in Serie A.
With AC Milan and Inter Milan topping the table, the hope will be that two top signings like this will be enough to close the gap.
