Amid that backdrop, the Times now claim that Juventus are ready to offer Man United £120m for Paul Pogba.
Should Man United accept that bid, the Red Devils would make a small profit on Pogba. The Times report:

Man United will say ‘no’ & reject Real Madrid too
Meanwhile, Spanish daily Mundo Deportivo believe Real Madrid are ready to show their hand in the race to sign Pogba.
