Juventus remain interested in signing Paul Pogba are ready to sell two players to fund a £150million move for the Manchester United midfielder, according to reports.

French World Cup winner Pogba could still leave Old Trafford this month with the Italian and Spanish transfer windows not closing until September 2.

The 26-year-old was expected to join Real Madrid before the close of the English transfer window but the La Liga giants failed to agree terms with Manchester United.

Pogba returned to the Theatre of Dreams from Juventus three years ago but could be set for another move to Turin with the Italian champions keen to secure his signature.

The Daily Express say Juventus are desperately scrambling to raise the necessary funds for the transfer and are trying to sell Croatian striker Mario Mandzukic.

Offloading Paulo Dybala to Paris Saint-Germain is another option if Real Madrid follow through with their interest in Brazilian superstar Neymar.

Both Mandzukic and Dybala were linked with Manchester United towards the end of the summer transfer window and Juve are ready to sacrifice the duo to help fund a move for Pogba.

It is claimed Manchester United will not stand in Pogba’s way if a suitable offer is received, although Ed Woodward is a known admirer of the former World Cup winner.

Red Devils hero Patrice Evra, meanwhile, who played alongside Pogba at Juventus, believes the Frenchman does not feel loved at Old Trafford like he did in Italy.

Evra said: ‘I don’t know what Paul’s future holds. I do know that he felt really loved in Juventus. He doesn’t feel that love in Manchester.

‘We always forget what a player is about. A player is about performing on the pitch. So kill him when he is not playing well but if he is playing well, concentrate on that.’

Pogba is expected to start for Manchester United on Sunday in their Premier League opener against Frank Lampard’s Chelsea.
