Italian giants Juventus have ended their interest in Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba this as reported by Sportsmail.
Though Pogba was open to a return to Turin, his agent Mino Raiola has been notified by Juve vice-chairman Pavel Nedved that they intend to pursue other targets.
The latest development leaves Real Madrid with a clear run at signing the £150million French midfielder this summer.
The World Cup winner who has made clear his intentions to leave United was at Juventus for four successful years between 2012 and 2016.
Juventus have already bolstered their midfield this summer with the free signings of Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal and Adrien Rabiot from Paris Saint-Germain.
They are also hopeful of concluding a deal for the Fiorentina playmaker Federico Chiesa, who is keen to join the Italian champions.
Pogba reported for United's pre-season tour of Australia, Singapore and China on Sunday morning despite fears that he wouldn't show up in order to force through his move away.
He has been training with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his squad in Perth ahead of two friendly matches there against Perth Glory and Leeds United.
Real are now the only club in the running for Pogba, who would relish the opportunity to play under his compatriot Zinedine Zidane.
