Paul Pogba is on the cusp of sealing his return to Juventus, with an official announcement expected at the start of next month.
Pogba enjoyed his most successful time as a player in his club career at Juventus from 2012 to 2016.
During that time he won four Serie A titles, and helped them reach the Champions League final in 2015.
Sportsmail now understands he is close to tying up details on a return to Turin having ran down his contract at Old Trafford to leave Manchester United after six years as a free agent.

After six years with Manchester United, Pogba will leave the club on June 30 as a free agent
Manchester United bought the midfielder for a then world record fee of £89million back in 2016 having been in awe of his form at Juventus.
The French World Cup winner went onto make 226 appearances for United, scoring 39 goals, but struggled to reach the heights many fans had hoped for.
United confirmed that Pogba will leave Old Trafford for a second time when his contract runs out on June 30, bringing to an end one of the most disappointing – and costly – careers in the club’s history.
Their farewell message to Pogba gushed over ‘a career that had brought so many individual high moments, so many beautiful goals, assists and pieces of skill.’

Rafaela Pimenta, the lawyer who has taken over the negotiations for former clients of Mino Raiola after his death, has been working on a deal for Pogba at Juventus.
Pimenta has continued talks with the Old Lady this week to finalise the terms of the deal.
Juventus know they need a refresh having finished fourth under Massimiliano Allegri last season, a total of 16 points adrift of eventual champions AC Milan.
Pogba is familiar with Allegri and will not need too much time to get used to life in Turin having previously thrived in the northern province.
