L’Equipe add that the Portuguese’s long-standing interest in the player could also be a factor as he tried to sign him when managing Chelsea.
The deal could be a world-record transfer with Juventus hoping to eclipse an £86m fee for the former United player.
Pogba left United in 2012 after becoming upset with a lack of first-team football and headed to Turin at the end of his contract for a measly £800,000 in compensation.
Due to the vast transfer fee Pogba can expect a monster wage and L’Equipe say it will be a ‘substantial financial package’.
United will not have it all their own way though as Real Madrid remain heavily interested in the Euro 2016 star.
