Juventus have reportedly reached an agreement to sign French midfielder Paul Pogba on a free transfer.
The former Manchester United star is expected in Turin on Saturday for a medical and to formally sign the contract.
The 2018 World Cup winner is said to have agreed a four-year contract with the Serie A giants ahead of much-anticipated return to Italy.

The move to Juventus would mark a return to a club where Pogba spent four years with before rejoining United for £89million in 2016, with Sky Sports reporting a deal has been agreed between both parties.
Pogba, who left United to join Juventus – also for free – in 2012, was meant to be the homecoming saviour when the Premier League side paid a then-world record fee for his services.
But his six seasons in the north-west have been marred by injuries and inconsistency, leading fans and pundits to question his effort and determination.

The 91-cap international scored 39 goals in 226 appearances in all competitions, but only once reached double figures in league goals, 13 in 2018-19 – a total he reached twice in his last two seasons at Juventus.
During that period he did, however, impress for France, helping Didier Deschamps’ France win the 2018 World Cup with several superb performances, he often failed to translate that form to his club side.
Pogba won just a Europa League and League Cup title across his time at the club and will doubtless be looking to continue lifting silverware at the same rate he did before at Juventus.
The 29-year-old won four Scudetto in four years and also won two Coppa Italias and two Italian Super Cups during his previous stint with The Old Lady.

Ahead of his second exit, Pogba has also irked United supporters for perhaps the final time after clips of his new documentary were released earlier this month.
One section of the documentary shows Pogba and his late agent discussing a £300,000-a-week contract offer from the Red Devils, which he branded ‘nothing’.
‘How can you tell a player you absolutely want him and offer him nothing?’ he said. ‘Never seen that.’
United fans were left seething with the footage, labelling Pogba a ‘greedy egomaniac’ and welcoming his departure at the end of the month even further.
Sportsmail previously revealed Pogba cost United almost £1m per game during his six years back at Old Trafford and will pocket a £3.78m loyalty bonus when he moves on again.
