Serie A Champions Juventus have reportedly told Manchester United target Paul Pogba to resume training with the rest of the club’s playing staff by Monday, according to the club’s coach boss Massimiliano Allegri.
Pogba who has been widely linked with a world record £100m+ move to Old Trafford this summer with Jose Mourinho suggesting a deal was close has been on holiday in the USA following his participation in Euro 2016 with France.
Allegri in a statement as quoted on the BBC Sport said: “It makes no sense at the moment talking about potential replacements for Pogba because, right now, Pogba is a Juventus player.
United begin their season in the Community Shield against Leicester City on Sunday, and Mourinho says the club are trying “everything to close the market as quickly as possible” before next weekend’s Premier League kick-off.
Juventus’ Serie A season begins a week later on 20 August, with the Italian champions due to face West Ham in a friendly at the Olympic Stadium on Sunday.
