Manchester United have made a £60 million bid for former player Paul Pogba, The Sun report.

Pogba left the Red Devils on a free transfer in 2012 to sign for Juventus, where he has gone onto win four consecutive league titles.

United have won only one in that period, finishing no higher than fourth since 2013.

Pogba left Old Trafford before he established himself in the first team, with his departure one of the biggest causes for regret at the club in recent years.

The Sun report that Pogba is intrigued at the possibility of working with new Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho, who was officially confirmed as boss last Friday.

While re-signing a player for big money who they let go for free is hardly ideal, Chelsea did so under Mourinho when they bought back Nemanja Matic for £40 million from Benfica, and once he immediately began contributing on the pitch, discussions over his fee were forgotten.

United would be wise to try and do a deal as soon as possible before Euro 2016 begins, and Pogba's price tag skyrockets even further.

In his first season back in his second spell at Chelsea, Mourinho clinched a deal for Cesc Fabregas one day before the World Cup started, indicating the need to secure a deal early is a factor he is fully aware of.

Pogba is represented by Mino Raiola, who is also the agent for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, strongly linked with a Manchester United switch.
