Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has confirmed the club are in negotiations to sell Manchester United target Paul Pogba.

United are keen to bring back their former academy player, who left Old Trafford for Juventus as a free agent in 2012.

The Red Devils are said to be willing to spend a world-record fee on Pogba, who is said to be open to a move.

The France star’s agemt, Mino Raiola, rubbished speculation this week that the move was a done deal, but Allegri says talks are taking place and the Juve coach insists the club will be “in good shape” should Pogba leave.

“Pogba is a Juventus player at the moment but we don’t know what is going to happen,” Allegri said ahead of his side’s pre-season clash with Melbourne Victory. “The club are looking after negotiations.

“Marko Pjaca is another quality addition for us so whatever happens with Pogba, we will be in good shape.”
