Manchester United starlet Paul Pogba has finally made a decision on his future – he will snub the Old Trafford club and join Juventus in the summer.
Goal.com are reporting that the France Under-19 international has decide to reject the Red Devils’ offer and sign a four-year deal with the Bianconeri worth a reported €1million a season.
Pogba is very highly rated at Old Trafford and Ferguson will not be happy about losing him, but the report suggests were unwilling to match wage demands they thought were unreasonable.
It also claims the move was orchestrated by the 19-year-old’s new agent Mino Raiola, who used to represent Juventus director Pavel Nedved and has a healthy relationship with the club.
Pogba is not the only youngster United may lose on a free transfer at the end of the season – Ezekiel Fryers is also yet to sign a new deal, while the much talked about Ravel Morrison was allowed to leave for West Ham before his contract ran out.
It is not a completely ‘free’ transfer, as United will receive compensation via tribunal due to Pogba’s age and years of development at the Premier League club.
