Pogba to pick United or Juve

Paul Pogba will next week decide to stay at Manchester United or leave for Juventus, his agent has confirmed.

The French youngster, 19, could quit Old Trafford in the summer once his contract with the Premiership club expires.

“I don’t know which way it will go between United and Juventus,” agent Mino Raiola is quoted as saying in The Times.

“It could be United. I think Paul is positive about Sir Alex Ferguson. The boy has a difficult situation to make. I will know next week.”

Although United want to keep hold of the midfielder, the Frenchman is being targeted by the Old Lady of Italian football.

Reports in the peninsula have suggested that Juve have offered the teenager a salary of €23,000 a week. That translates to an annual wage of just under €1.2m.

United would not receive a transfer fee for the player should he leave, but would net around €350,000 from the Italian club as training compensation.

United signed Pogba from Le Havre in October 2009.

A report earlier this week suggested that the teenager has decided to move to Turin.
