Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has confirmed the club is in talks with Manchester United over Paul Pogba's potential move to Old Trafford.
The Red Devils are reported to have agreed a world record £100m transfer for the 23-year-old Frenchman, who seems set to rejoin the club he first joined as a 16-year-old from Le Havre.
Pogba left Old Trafford in 2012 after three years and just seven appearances for United, joining Juve for a tribunal fee of just £800,000 amid claims that then-manager Sir Alex Ferguson's relationship with the player's agent, Mino Raiola, had broken down.
"Pogba is a Juventus player at the moment but we don't know what is going to happen. The club are looking after negotiations," Allegri said.
The Italian champions have already boosted their squad this summer, signing Miralem Pjanic from Roma in a £25.4m deal and Croatian winger Marko Pjaca from Dinamo Zagreb for £20m.
And Allegri, who led La Vecchia Signora to the Champions League final in 2015, says Juve are in a good position to deal with the departure of Pogba.
"He is another quality addition so whatever happens with Pogba, we will be in good shape."
United have already completed the signings of Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan this summer.
