Pogba has been the subject of an intense tug of war so far this summer, with Manchester United, Manchester City, Paris St Germain, Real Madrid, and Barcelona all keen on securing his signature.

Two of Barcelona’s directors – Ariedo Braida and Alberto Soler – flew to Italy on Monday to meet Juve officials, but their opening bid was turned down.

“Barcelona offered us €80m for Pogba but we don’t want to sell him,” Marotta told the famed  Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.

Barca are still banned from signing players until January 2016, but that hasn’t stopped them trying to make some deals this summer.

Juve are reportedly unwilling to lose another key player this summer, having already seen Pirlo leave for the MLS and Tevez leave for Boca Juniors.

Nonetheless, Goal report that a bid of £100 could seal the deal.
