Juventus inform Pogba they can't afford Man Utd terms

Juventus are pulling back from plans to re-sign Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

The finances involved and uncertainty given by the Italian government over local football's stadium lockout has Juve rethinking plans of competing for Pogba in 2021.

Sky Italia says United's asking price of €100m and the player's €16-17m-a-year personal demands are just too rich for the Bianconeri.

As such, word has been sent to Mino Raiola, Pogba's agent, that a return to Turin is unlikely to be explored.

Pogba saw his contract extended unilaterally by United last week to 2022.
