Juventus are preparing to sell five players to fund their move to re-sign Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba in the summer transfer window, according to a report in Italy.

Italian media outlet Corriere dello Sport, as quoted by the Daily Mail, is reporting that the Serie A champions are eager to bring the France international back to Turin.

The same article states that Pogba returned to Turin last month to celebrate their Serie A title despite leaving the Italian giants in an £89m deal in 2016.

According to the same story, Manchester United are adamant that the 26-year-old won’t be allowed to leave Old Trafford this summer.

But the report adds that Juventus are hoping to fund a big-money move to sign Pogba by selling Joao Cancelo, Douglas Costa, Juan Cuadrado, Mario Mandzukic and Mattia Perin.

Pogba has struggled to justify his club-record transfer fee since Jose Mourinho brought the box-to-box midfielder back to Old Trafford in the 2016 summer transfer window.

The Manchester United number six has won the Europa League and League Cup since his move back to Old Trafford but the Red Devils have been unable to compete for major silverware.

Pogba was Manchester United’s top goal-scorer last season following a return of 13 goals, although the majority of those came from the penalty spot.
