Old Trafford youngster set for Turin move.
Paul Pogba has reportedly decided to turn down a new contract offer at Manchester United in favour of a move to Juventus.
The young French midfielder, who was recently handed a run of games for the Old Trafford outfit, has reportedly been in talks with a number of clubs since the turn of the year, in light of his contract in Manchester running to an end this summer.
Whilst the Red Devils have been prominent in making moves to extend his deal, reports in Italy suggest that the 19-year-old has turned them down so as to take up an offer from Serie A side Juventus.
Calciomercato.com and Sky Sport Italia are both reporting that sources close to the Old Lady have confirmed that an economic agreement has been reached with the midfielder and that official confirmation of the deal is now merely a formality.

Paul Pogba has been strongly linked with a move away from Old Trafford for some time, with many surmising that such a move was on the cards as the young Frenchman has been seeking a more regular first team berth. Will he secure that at Juventus?
We are after all talking about a player who only just turned 19 but seemed to think he should already be a regular in the Old Trafford set-up. Will the former Le Havre man get any more playing time at Juventus? Given that Antonio Conte’s side have gone the entire Serie A season unbeaten it seems likely that no-one in his first team squad is likely to be pushed out by Pogba’s imminent arrival.
Pogba has thus far managed just 77 minutes of Premier League football to date.
