The Paul Pogba transfer saga lives to fight another day as the France international's future continues to dominate the back pages in England, Italy and Spain.

The Juventus midfielder has been heavily linked with a return to his former club Manchester United throughout the summer while Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has encouraged Los Blancos to step up their interest.

Super agent Mino Raiola previously tweeted that reports of a move to Old Trafford were not true, new Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho insisted the club may alter their targets and Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri finally confirmed negotiations of a deal were on-going. One thing is for sure, the Old Lady aren't waiting around as they pursue a sixth consecutive Serie A title.

With Alvaro Morata heading back to Spain and Pogba edging ever closer to an Italian departure, The Mail are reporting that the 2015 Champions League finalists have agreed to a blockbuster deal with Napoli for 38-goal striker Gonzalo Higuain.

Juve have supposedly approved paying the £78 million buyout clause in the forward's contract, and the Argentinian is said to have completed a medical on Friday.

It is believed the 28-year-old has agreed to a four-year deal worth a maximum of £8.3 million-per-year with bonuses after tax while his soon-to-be new club will pay for the transfer in installments of £39 million.

Napoli finished second last season - nine points behind the champions - and the Turin club's addition of the South American will only prove to strengthen their monopoly of Italian football.
