Manchester United target Paul Pogba is close to signing a new contract at Juventus, according to the Daily Mirror.

David Moyes had reportedly identified the 20-year-old as a top transfer target for the summer, but now it seems he will be forced to look elsewhere for midfield reinforcements.

Super-agent Mino Raiola is traveling to Turin to negotiate a new contract for the French international, which would see him stay at the Serie A  champions until 2018.

And the midfielder – who left Manchester United in 2012 – is set to treble his wages at the club, as a reward for performances that have seen Juventus become firm favourites to claim their third consecutive Scudetto.

David Moyes and chief scout Jim Lawlor traveled to Italy to watch Pogba and Juventus teammate Arduro Vidal in action last month.

Both were thought to be top summer targets for Moyes, but the Manchester United boss looks set to be left frustrated in his search for midfield reinforcements once again.

Moyes has already missed out on the likes of Thiago Alcantara, Cesc Fabregas, Koke, and Ander Herrera since taking over the club in the summer.
