But Pogba “only ever wanted Juventus”, according to Fabrizio Romano.
And Sky Sports Italia have now revealed the 2018 World Cup winner’s representatives are hoping to complete a four-year deal on Thursday.
It’s expected Pogba will push for either a four-year deal or a three-year deal with the option for an additional season.
Should the two parties come to an agreement, Pogba will fly into Turin between July 5 and 8 to undergo his medical and put pen to paper on his contract.
The players has been busy since quitting Old Trafford at the end of last season.
At the weekend, Pogba played in an exhibition match in Florida featuring a host of Brazilian legends and even old Juve pal Paulo Dybala.
Pogba attended a DJ Khaled concert later that night, as he posed with Dybala and Real Madrid star Vinicius Jr.
Since his trip to the US, the ex-United man flew to his parents’ homeland of Guinea.
Pogba was given a hero’s welcome as thousands lined the streets to welcome the football icon.
The France international – whose big brothers were born in Guinean capital city Conakry – is due to play in a charity game to benefit the West African country.
Ex-Liverpool duo Titi Camara and El-Hadji Diouf, plus former Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor, are also expected to take part.
On his trip to Guinea, Pogba revealed: “It’s very emotional for me to return to the country.
“My family is here, and I can tell that Guinea has changed.
“I’ve sadly not been able to come over sooner, what with the heavy fixture calendar and the Covid pandemic, but now I am here.
“I have decided to return to help Guinea develop.
“God has given me the good fortune to be able to succeed, and to return and help my country.
“We need peace in order to progress. We want the best for our children and future generations.”
