Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici has held talks with Manchester United in London about the potential sale of Paul Pogba, according to a report in Italy.

Sky Italia, as quoted by Sky Sports, is reporting that the Juventus sporting director made the trip to the English capital to hold a number of different meetings.

The same article states that the two clubs are in the early stages of negotiations as Manchester United explore the possibility of potentially offloading Pogba this summer.

According to the same story, Juventus right-back Joao Cancelo is also part of the negotiations after Manchester City cooled their interest in the Portuguese defender.

Manchester United have already been linked with a host of right-backs in the summer transfer window, including Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka and PSG’s Thomas Meunier.

Sky Sports go on to add that Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola is now free to negotiate his client’s transfer after his ban imposed by the Italian FA was suspended.

Manchester United signed Pogba in a club record £89m deal from Juventus in the 2016 summer transfer window following the appointment of Jose Mourinho as manager.

Pogba has fired the Red Devils to Europa League and League Cup glory since his return to Manchester United.

The Red Devils haven’t won the Premier League title since 2013 or the Champions League crown since 2008.
