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.

    The Daily mail is your source here….LOL. Oh It must true so. Lazy reporting on this site I’m afraid.

    Linked with second rate players like kagawa and Gaitan. the lose of pogba and morrison. its going down hill. park, nani,macheda, scholes, giggs, carrick, de geah welbeck, fletcher, anderson. not good enough.

    so, who should we sign?

    John Tring, I know you’re just winding everybody up like you do when you comment in the Mail but do you realise how stupid you sound? You don’t like Jones because he’s just a future prospect buy think we need to keep or should have kept Pogba, Morrison, Rossi and Pique who are or were future prospects.

    Utd have a problem here. If SAF plays a young player like Pogba he weakens the team so should he forget youth and just buy players or stick with youth and lose the league? This season he’s introduced Cleverley, Welbeck, Jones and De Gea. Raphael and Smalling are still young and will improve. And now we find Utd second on goal difference to a club that just buys whoever looks good. I’d rather see Utd stick with this policy and we’ll see the team grow and improve over then next few years.

    Pogba can go for my money. We don’t need him. United have a young team that will dominate for the next decade. Scholes has another 4 seasons and Giggs has the legs of a 21 year old. Glory glory Man United

    We are a team in decline. Only a fool would deny are midfield is simply not up to it. Fergie has to come clean, is there money for top notch signings or have the Americans stuffed us like a thanks giving Turkey?

    Do Not Worry About Him , For I Shall Be Wearing The Number 8 Shirt Next Season.

    One, we stick with Park, Carrick, Giggs and Scholes, yes those two too, when new faster, creative players are emerging. Lets stop living in the past. Probably Pogba saw it as long as the oldies keep playing he won’t get a chance let him go.
    Scholes and Giggs should retire, with all due respect. They can’t match the new generation midfielders lets be honest, let them retire so we can invest in new players.
    When we trashed City, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham the midfield was Cleverly and Ando, but when Carrick and co came back, outrun, beaten and outplayed in most games.
    One point, City are not that good, we are the one who are awful this season, if else we couldn’t be number 2 by goal difference.
