Paul Pogba set to sign four-year Juventus deal as flop swallows £160k-a-week PAY CUT to seal free transfer from Man Utd | The Sun
JUVENTUS are close to signing Paul Pogba on a four-year deal, according to reports.
Pogba, 28, will leave Manchester United when his contract expires at the end of this month.
The Frenchman re-joined the Red Devils in 2016 for a club-record fee of £89million after initially leaving Old Trafford for free in 2012.
But following an underwhelming spell in the Premier League, neither the player nor the club were willing to extend his deal.
This means that he is now available for any club to sign on a free transfer.
And Juventus are currently winning the race.

According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, the Italian giants are "more than confident" that they can come to an agreement with Pogba and his representatives in the next few days.
The midfielder is expected to receive around £130,000-a-week when he re-signs for the 'Old Lady' – a significant pay cut from the £290,000 he reportedly earns at Man Utd.
Pogba enjoyed a successful four-year spell at Juventus earlier in his career.
In 178 appearances across all competitions he recorded 74 goal contributions and helped the club to four Serie A titles.
