Juventus are set to sign Real Madrid defender Pogba from Manchester United after the midfielder was forced to leave the Spanish champions following a transfer request.
It was reported that Juventus had offered the defender a three-year contract worth around £75m, but it is understood that the club rejected the offer and made the move in order to secure the services of Juventus star Koke.
The move would have cost Juventus around €75m but is thought to have been rejected due to the fact that Pogba has not yet signed his deal with the Serie A champions.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus had already paid around €80m for the 25-year-old, but Pogba’s representatives believe they will have to pay a further €60m to secure him a long-term deal.
In order to complete the deal, Pogba will have had to agree to a move to the Turin giants, but Juve have already offered around €65m in compensation to secure his signature.
The midfielder, who was voted as the best defender in Serie A by fans, will make his Juventus debut in the Champions League final on Saturday against Olympiakos.
