Juventus will hold fresh transfer talks over Paul Pogba on Monday.
The Italian giants are due to meet with Pogba’s representatives in the hope of thrashing out a deal for the Manchester United midfielder.
World Cup winner Pogba, 29, is leaving Old Trafford this summer on a free transfer and Juventus believe they are favourites to get him ahead of Paris Saint Germain and Real Madrid.
Juventus had already been negotiating with Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola but his death through illness has left Brazilian lawyer Rafaela Pimenta in charge of the last details.
It would be a remarkable deal for Juventus as they would be signing him for a second time and, even though PSG are believed to have made a better offer, the Italians are very hopeful.

Pogba has long dreamed of a move to Real Madrid but the Spanish giants have been dithering which has left the way clear for the other two clubs.
Juventus are ready to offer Pogba £8m-a-year – which is £160,000-a-week – plus a huge bonus package and signing-on fees which makes it a lucrative deal even if the basic salary is not one of the biggest in football terms.
They are also selling him a vision that he would be a huge star and the main man in the future of the club after signing Dušan Vlahović from Fiorentina for £62m in January while Paulo Dybala and Giorgio Chiellini are both set to leave this summer.
Juventus want to build their team around him and see Pogba as one of the best midfielders in world football despite his turbulent six years at United.

Pogba joined Juventus as a teenager from United in 2012, then went back to Old Trafford in 2016 for £89m – and now the Italians hope to nick him off United again and this time on a free transfer.
It would be a remarkable return for Pogba who enjoyed his first spell at Juventus and, even after a mixed six years at United, Europe’s top clubs are all keen on him.
Manchester City were offered the chance to sign Pogba but the United midfielder has decided against moving to another Premier League club and wants to make a fresh start.
