Manchester United are set to reject any offers for midfielder Paul Pogba this summer, according to reports.

The Guardian claimed on Wednesday that Juve have ‘made contact’ with the Old Trafford hierarchy over a potential deal.

Despite their lack of a manager – following the departure of Max Allegri – the Old Lady ‘have made United aware of their interest’ in Pogba.

The report adds that Pogba – who has two years left on his contract –  ‘would be happy’ to return to Turin, having enjoyed a positive relationship with Fabio Paratici and a number of players.

However, the Daily Mail now claims that United’s board are prepared to ‘stand firm and rebuff approaches’ for the 26-year-old this summer.

The report adds that United ‘doubt whether Juventus have the money available to finalise a deal’ for the midfielder with some reports valuing the France international at £120million.

Juventus sporting director Paratici said on Wednesday that the club will “speak” with their new coach over the possibility of bringing Pogba back to Turin.

The Daily Mail continue, though by saying executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward ‘has made it plain that he does not want to see Pogba depart’.
