News is apparently breaking in Italy that Juventus have firmly shut the door on Manchester United with regard to Paul Pogba.
A series of unsubstantiated tweets, claiming to credit Sky Italia as the source, report that Serie A champions have no intention of selling their star midfielder to anyone and have apparently told agent Mino Raiola that there is no deal to be done.

Listen we're not getting Pogba… Not a chance. Can't see it. More options out there. And cheaper.

That being said, as yet, these rumours have not been backed up by any official channels.
United have constantly linked with bringing Pogba back to Old Trafford. In fact, Jose Mourinho has reportedly directed the club to get the Frenchman ‘at all costs‘.
With simultaneous reports suggesting that a deal is still there for the making, it would seem this social media meltdown is likely unfounded but should Juventus decide to slam the door on a possible Pogba exit, United might just have to make do with what they have.
Considering this now includes Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, you might feel United will be just fine next season.
