Juventus now favourites to sign Manchester United star

Pogba tipped to join Juventus this summer

Juventus are reportedly leading the race to sign midfielder Paul Pogba from Manchester United when the season comes to a close.

The Frenchman has struggled with multiple ankle injuries this term and he is currently sidelined until mid-February following a surgery.

According to Tuttosport, the midfielder could head through the United exit door during next summer's transfer window and the Bianconeri are the front-runners to sign him.

United are said to have placed a £150m price tag on the Frenchman's head but they may consider reducing the price with the midfielder approaching the final year of his contract.

Pogba has also been linked with a possible move to Real Madrid but it appears that the 13-time European champions have shifted their interest towards signing Donny van de Beek from Ajax.

The Frenchman has not started a Premier League game for United since early September. He could yet play a key role for the club in the quest for the top four and silverware when he returns from his injury setback.
