Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has spoken directly to Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.

This has been reported by The Sun, who claim that the Special One has outlined his vision to the France international. 

The report states that Mourinho, who replaced Louis van Gaal as United boss at the end of last season, has told Pogba that he wants him at the fulcrum of his midfield.

Pogba, 23, is already recognised as one of the leading midfielders in world football and is currently starring with France at Euro 2016. 

The dynamic Frenchman left Old Trafford on a free transfer back in 2011 after failing to establish himself as a first-team player, but it now appears that he could be on his way back to the club in the near future.

But it will come at a price for the Red Devils, who may have to spend as much as £80 million to secure his signature. 

If the report is to be believed, United are the first team to have met Juve's £80m valuation for their talisman. 

But there's a twist; Pogba, despite being impressed by Mourinho's ambition, wants to see if Spanish giants Real Madrid make a move. 

Real have long been linked with Pogba, who looks set to have a huge decision to make over the coming months.
