Paul Pogba 'puts Juventus on top of transfer wishlist' as midfielder lines up free switch when Man Utd contract expires
PAUL POGBA has put Juventus at the top of his wishlist as he edges towards a free move away from Manchester United in the summer.
The France midfielder, 28, is out of contract at Old Trafford at the end of the current season.
Pogba re-joined United in a then-world-record £89million move from Juventus in 2016.
And the 2018 World Cup winner wants a return to the Old Lady, according to Gazetta dello Sport.
Pogba has largely failed to replicate his top form back in the Premier League after blossoming into one of the world's best midfielders in Italy.
It's believed the midfield maestro does want to extend his stay in Manchester, but wants to overtake Cristiano Ronaldo as their top earner.
That is likely to scare United officials away, with the likes of Juventus, Real Madrid and PSG keen on landing him on a free.
And Pogba has put Juve at the top of his personal wishlist, according to the report in Italy – with European clubs able to open pre-contract talks in January.

The 89-cap France international spent the best four years of his career in Turin.
He won the Serie A title in every season at the Allianz Stadium – named in the league's Team of the Season three times, while also being crowned Golden Boy in 2013.
Pogba may now have played his final game for United.
The Frenchman is set to miss two months with a thigh injury picked up in training while away on international duty.
Discussions over a new contract at Old Trafford have been completely shelved.
United’s hierarchy are fed up of the circus that surrounds him, particularly with his agent Mino Raiola.
The Old Trafford giants are now happy to let Pogba’s contract expire, leave him out of the team if necessary and allow him to go as a free agent.
