Another day, another twist in the Paul Pogba saga. 

The 23-year-old is still yet to sign for Manchester United despite what seems like an eternity of speculation. 

Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri must be sick of hearing about his star man's expected departure, and he certainly made that clear when he was asked his thoughts on the subject.

"It's only fair that Jose Mourinho should choose not to talk of Pogba as long as he's a Juventus player," Allegri said, as per 

"I called up Pogba for tomorrow [Sunday] evening, so he'll be in Vinovo for training on Monday."

That contradicts reports that the Frenchman was set to arrive at Old Trafford within the new few days, as United race against the clock to get the deal done before the start of the Premier League season. 

"He's a Juventus player" 

Allegri was also reluctant to discuss who he might bring in to replace the superstar, though it's something he must have considered.

"There's no point in discussing replacements for Pogba because right now he's a Juventus player," he added.

Real Madrid are the only other club being consistently linked with a move for Pogba, though it's understood they are reluctant to pay the £100million fee. 

That leaves a return to United as the most likely scenario, but judging by Allegri's comments, that could still be some way off. 

Is Paul Pogba worth £100million? Have your say in the comments.
