That is according to reports in Italy that suggest Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola is working on a transfer.
Pogba is one of the most high-profile footballers on the planet and it was his marketability that helped fuel his £89m transfer from Juve to United in 2016.
But the midfielder has blown hot and cold at Old Trafford under manager Jose Mourinho and now wants out.
Juventus are said to be open to a January deal for the Frenchman, while United could cut their losses when the transfer window opens.
And Italian newspaper Tuttosport claims Pogba has received instructions on how best to get out of the club.
According to the Italian daily, Raiola has ‘advised him to sit tight and keep a low profile’ at United over the next few weeks.
Pogba was spotted during the international break with Lionel Messi – a meeting that only fuelled suggestions Barcelona are ready to pounce on the World Cup winner.
Tuttosport claim Raiola has three problems that he must resolve before he can secure Pogba’s move back to Italy.
The first is to secure the approval or United that a sale would be in their interests.
The Red Devils hierarchy are ‘not satisfied’ with Pogba’s behaviour over the opening weeks of the season and are dissatisfied that they forked out £89m for the player.
It is claimed Raiola’s second task is to work out how much Juventus will pay for the player.
Paul Pogba is two years into the five-year contract he signed when rejoining Old Trafford in 2016.
In market value terms, he is now worth two fifths less than he was 24 months ago.
A figure of around £53m (€60m) may be enough for Juventus to afford, but United are seeking closer to £71m (€80m).
And finally Raiola will have to work out Pogba’s wage demands and deliver the fee to Juve.
The Turin club have already caused controversy this season by forking out £26m a season for Cristiano Ronaldo’s four-year deal.
In order to finance that they required the help of FIAT, the car company owned by the Agnelli family that also runs Juventus.
Pogba would likely demand a raise on his £8.9m-a-season contract at United to move back to Turin.
The report claims he would want to be the second-highest paid player behind Ronaldo.
