Juventus have reportedly ended their interest in Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

Juve had been heavily linked with bringing Pogba back, and agent Mino Raiola has done his best efforts to engineer a transfer.

However Italian journalist Alvise Cagnazzo for the Daily Mail warns United’s demands of £150m (€167m) have put off the Bianconeri, who informed the Red Devils that they ‘intend to pursue other targets’.

Consequently, Cagnazzo claims Real Madrid now have a ‘clear run’ at the signing the Frenchman, although Los Blancos still have to sell before they can buy.

The Old Lady have already brought in midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot on free transfers, while Pogba is currently with United on their preseason tour of Australia.
