Serie A champions Juventus are believed to have ended their interest in bringing Paul Pogba back to Turin.
The France international had been linked with a return to the Old Lady, with the midfielder thought to be looking for a move away from Manchester United this summer.
Pogba enjoyed four successful seasons with Juve between 2012 and 2016 before making a big-money move back to Old Trafford.
However, all has not gone according to plan for the playmaker and, after an unsettled relationship with former United boss Jose Mourinho, Pogba appears to want out of Manchester.
Juve vice-chairman Pavel Nedved is believed to have told Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, that they will be pursuing other targets this summer, which leaves Real Madrid as the favourites to sign the player this summer.
