The Frenchman's departure from United will bring to an end his tumultuous second spell with the club which lasted for six years.

Pogba rejoined the Manchester club in the summer of 2016 for a then-world-record fee but failed to live up to his billing.

While the 29-year-old has been linked with potential moves to Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, Mirror UK reports that Juventus are firm favourites to land him in the coming weeks.

Details of Paul Pogba's transfer to Juventus

According to Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport, the World Cup-winning star has already reached a deal to rejoin Juventus this summer.

The publication claims that France international will pocket €8m-per-year (around £6.8m) salary at Juventus.

That translates to more than £131,000-a-week, which would be a wage cut as he was reportedly earning £290,000-a-week at Old Trafford.

Be that as it may, it is understood that the Juve deal is still lucrative as he could earn up to €2m-per-year - around £1.7m - in bonuses.

Additionally, he is expected to receive a huge signing-on fee given that the Italian giants will be acquiring his services on a free transfer.

Manchester United finally make 1st official bid to sign Barcelona star

Earlier, Sports Brief reported Manchester United have opened the bidding to sign Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong this summer.

Things were tough for Manchester United last season as they failed to win any title and did not also finish among the top four teams which means that the Reds Devils will play in Europa League next term.

Already, Jesse Lingard and Paul Pogba have left Manchester United and manager Erik ten Hag will have to find replacements before the start of 2022/23 Premier League.
