Transfer Balls looks at Paul Pogba in today’s papers. What news of the former Manchester United player now with Juventus?

The Mirror says “The Juventus ace…is understood to favour a move to the Nou Camp”.

Paul Pogba is ready to reject a summer switch to Manchester City to join Barcelona instead.

Or as the Manchester Evening News puts it:

Manchester City are confident they can beat Europe’s biggest clubs to their top transfer targets like Paul Pogba and Raheem Sterling….

We’re told that City will fight Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich for Pogba.

That’s the Real Madrid the Express said Pogba wanted to play for:

But the Daily Star “understands former Manchester United star Pogba has set his heart on joining Barca – even if he has to wait 12 months.” The paper also understands, in a story billed as an “exclusive”, that Paris St-Germain like Pogba.

Number of words from Pogba in all stories: nil.

But Pogba does tell the Guardian.

“Let people think what they want to think. I am happy with how my time has gone in Turin…I am in a Champions League final with Juventus, not Manchester, so things have worked out very well for me.”

Such are the facts..
