Turin side want French starlet.
Juventus are preparing an attempt to sign unsettled Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.
The 18-year-old’s contract expires in the summer and he has hesitated on signing an extension, leading to links with Chelsea and both Milan clubs as well as the Turin side.
United let teenage midfielder Ravel Morrison move to West Ham in January but are believed to be working hard to keep the talented Frenchman at the club.
Italian newspaper Tuttosport claims the teenager’s agent Mino Raiola will meet with Juve bosses this week with the Serie A side prepared to offer Pogba a four-year deal.
It seems that Ravel Morrison and Paul Pogba both want first team football and whilst the English youngster left for Championship table toppers West Ham this source believes that the French teenager is commanding the very real interest of Italian giants Juventus.
Antonio Conte has helped to put the Turin side back on the map after two seventh place finishes and his Juventus side are still unbeaten in Serie A action this season and are just two points off top spot with two games in hand. Pogba arrived at Old Trafford following his controversial move from Le Havre that led to the French side filing a complaint with UEFA, in 2009 but has managed just 17 minutes of Premier League action.
The French Under 19 international has seen the likes of youngsters Tom Cleverley, Danny Welbeck and new signings Phil Jones and David de Gea establish themselves in the first team and probably feels he should have had more of a foot in the door by now and Ferguson clearly felt the need to finally blood the youngster in Premier League action last month against Stoke City and the Scot will hope to avoid losing the midfielder this summer.
If Ferguson is going to lose Pogba he will have to hope he moves to Italy over a switch to Chelsea and any move will be subject to a tribunal setting a fee because even though the teenager will see his contract end in the summer he can not be subject of a free transfer because of his age.
