Manchester United will allow Paul Pogba to join Juventus in a swap deal, but do not want Aaron Ramsey in return.
The Frenchman is set to leave Old Trafford in the summer with a return to the Italian outfit in the pipeline.
Rather than haggle on a transfer fee United are willing to negotiate a trade deal, but only for certain players.
Ramsey is not of interest and neither is winger Douglas Costa, reports Calciomercato.
The Welshman has been in Turin for 18 months but been able to hit the heights he achieved at Arsenal.
Costa meanwhile is currently on loan at Bayern Munich.
Juventus accept that neither player is seen as a match for the World Cup winner’s value so would not be able to sway the deal their way.
A player swap is the ideal solution for the Bianconeri who invested in new faces in the summer.
Mirror Sport understands that Pogba will be allowed to leave Manchester after the club accepted that he would not sign a new deal.
They are now looking to get the best possible deal and could yet enhance their squad if they get the right player.
Pogba’s future was thrown into doubt once again recently when his agent Mino Raiola declared his time at Old Trafford “over”.
The Frenchman and his representatives have previously pushed for a move away, but United have stood firm.
This time though they look set to budge and cut ties with the player.
Raiola claimed back in December that his client was no longer content in Manchester.
He said: “Paul [Pogba] is unhappy. He is no longer able to express himself as he would like and as expected of him.”
