The Pogba transfer saga has took a final and disappointing turn for United, with reports that the young midfielder has decided to join Italian giants Juventus rather than stay at Old Trafford.

Despite Sir Alex Ferguson repeatedly telling the media and the youngster himself that he has a big future at United, even going as far to claim he will become ‘a great United player’ the former Le Havre man has decided to move to Turin in the Summer.

The Mail reports:

Teenage sensation Paul Pogba has decided to quit Manchester United and sign for Juventus.

The France Under-19 midfielder has turned down a lucrative contract at Old Trafford to join the Italian outfit.

His decision was made known in a letter from his agent Mino Raiola to United chief executive David Gill, but there has been no contact between Pogba, 19, and United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

This will come a something of a sickening blow to many at United, with Pogba being seen as someone who could have made an impression on the first team as quickly as next season, especially with the likes of Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes getting to the stage where cameos are perhaps more likely than full games.

Of course, it’s still yet to be confirmed by either the club or the player, but the fact that Pogba’s not yet signed an offer from the club he’s currently playing for, doesn’t bode well, especially with reports in Italy and now England that’s he Juventus-bound.
