Ronaldo ‘gave Juventus the seal of approval to move for Pogba’

Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly given Juventus his seal of approval to move for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

Spanish publication El Desmarque claims both Real and Juventus are keen to renew their efforts to sign Pogba.

And the publication says Juventus ace Ronaldo gave the okay to a move for Pogba after being consulted by the club over the French midfielder.

Juventus signed Pogba from United on a free transfer in 2012, before selling him back for a then world-record £94.5m four years later.

El Desmarque also claims Real are pondering whether to test United’s resolve with a £150m bid.

Considering Pogba’s indifferent form and his current injury, United may be tempted to sell for less than the £180m they wanted in the summer.
