Paul Pogba will tell Juventus that he wants to make a world record breaking move this summer, according to widespread reports.

The Daily Mail are among those reporting that the 23-year-old midfielder will inform his employers that he wants to make a move this summer, with his agent Mino Raiola already believed to have agreed a lavish wages deal with United for his client.

Real Madrid are also in the mix to sign Pogba this summer, but the word coming from Spain suggests they are not willing to match the €120m transfer fee that United are believed to be ready to pay.

Pogba has previously stated his eagerness to remain in Turin and Juve have been adamant in their determination to hang on to their prized asset.

Yet a public declaration from Pogba that he wishes to make a move ahead of the new domestic season could persuade the Italian giants to do business with United or Real Madrid.

Agent Raiola has already successful signed off on deals to bring his clients Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan to United this summer, yet it is the Pogba deal that may break records as it could eclipse the £86m world record deal that saw Gareth Bale move from Tottenham to Real Madrid in 2013. 

It is believed that United boss Jose Mourinho wants the Pogba transfer to be resolved before the end of July, with the Old Trafford club prepared to move on to alternative midfield options if a breakthrough cannot be made in the push for their leading transfer target.
