Red Devils let youngster leave Old Trafford for nothing two years ago.
Premier League champions Manchester United will have to wait until the end of the season in order to be able to re-sign Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, according to reports in the Manchester Evening News.

The coveted France international used to play for the Red Devils, however, Pogba decided to leave Old Trafford in the summer of 2012 to join the Serie A champions on a lucrative Bosman-style free transfer after claiming that he had not been handed enough first-team opportunities by the then United head coach Sir Alex Ferguson.
And since moving to Turin, Pogba has since gone on to establish himself as being one of the most promising players in his position in Europe, and while Juve’s director general Beppe Marotta has ruled out any possibility of the player moving back to Manchester in the January transfer window, he did leave open the possibility of the Frenchman re-joining the Red Devils in the summer though.
“Juventus in its history has always bought many and sold few when talking about champions,” he said.
“From our point of view, we do not want to sell Pogba and so far we have closed the door to any possible buyer.
“Our aim is to consolidate the group, we do not want to sell him, but certain assessments must be made later.”
