Papers: Pogba to Juve?

The Daily Mail writes


Pogba closer to Juventus move
Juventus are understood to have outlined a four-year contract for Manchester United teenager Paul Pogba. The 18-year-old midfielder, who is also wanted by Chelsea, is out of contract at Old Trafford at the end of this season.

Of course, the French midfielder was not involved in the Europa League defeat to Ajax.

The Daily Mail also reports that Tottenham are planning a summer clear-out to fund new deals for Luka Modric, who has long been linked with the Reds, and Emmanuel Adebayor. Former Red Phil Neville has taken up coaching responsibilities with the England Under-21 squad and this is covered in a number of the newspapers.

Much of the focus, inevitably, is on the disappointing defeat to Ajax on Thursday night and the manager's admission that his team selection was to blame.
