Juventus are still hoping to sign Manchester United star Paul Pogba, reports claim.
The midfielder, who admitted ‘it could be time for a new challenge’ in June, has been heavily linked with Real Madrid and Juve throughout the summer.
The Express claim Juventus are attempting to raise funds for £150million-rated Pogba before the Italian transfer window closes on September 2.
However, both clubs pulled out of a deal due to Dybala’s excessive wage demands.
United also chased Mandzukic as a late replacement for Romelu Lukaku, who joined Inter Milan for £72million, but a move never materialised.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are short in midfield following Ander Herrera’s departure to Paris Saint-Germain.
And United legend Ryan Giggs believes a potential Pogba exit would leave an even bigger void in the club’s midfield.
He said: “I think the fans are split. Some fans say ‘let him go’ and some recognise the quality he has got and if he does go there will be a big void.

“If you get rid of all the players and you haven’t got quality to replace them, then that is difficult as well. So it is a tough job for Ole, that balancing act.
“Ronaldo said he wanted to go and then did an extra year. Whether that is going to happen or not, I don’t know.
“But if Pogba goes now, there will be a massive void in midfield where I think we are already short.”
