However, he has struggled to replicate the sort of form which earned him a move back to England in the first place – and is now ready to call it quits.
His relationship with United boss Jose Mourinho has been under intense scrutiny – with the input of his agent Mino Raiola not helping the issue.
As a result Pogba now feels he has little option but to seek a move away.
The midfielder has also been a target for Spanish giants Barcelona, but for now it looks as though Juve are in the driving seat for his signature.
