Manchester United target Paul Pogba could be available this summer, according to reports emanating from Juventus.

French newspaper Le 10 Sport, citing rumours in Italy, claims that John Elkann, part of the Agnelli family who owns the Turin club, has refused to rule out the sale of Pogba because he is in such high demand.

The French starlet, who left United in 2012, is coveted by a number of European giants, namely the likes of Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and of course United.

And, despite the fact that in the January transfer window Pogba was deemed to be in the not for sale pile at Juventus, Elkann has now admitted that they face a fight to keep him past the end of this season.

“This is a great player. I can not say that Pogba will continue to Juventus,” he said.

“But if I bring up the subject, I know that the press will only speak of it ... So I do not want to answer."

That latter of those remarks would seemingly imply that the Serie A champions could be prepared to listen to big offers for their prized youngster, who they’re said to value at around £40million.

The news will likely be of interest to United boss David Moyes as the Scot is rumoured to be planning a major overhaul of his side in the summer.

Despite the capture of Juan Mata United’s fortunes have been in stark contrast to seasons past, and it’s thought that the club’s No.1 priority at the moment is to improve the standard of player they have on their books through acquiring new talent.
