Juventus have informed Paul Pogba he will have to resort to taking a pay cut if he is to complete making a return to the Serie A side from Manchester United.
Pogba has been reportedly linked with a move back to Juventus just four years after completing his own return to Old Trafford from the Italian giants.
However, Tuttosport reported that Pogba may have to further lower his wage demands of £11m per year, which is already down from the £15m-a-year deal he is on at United.
The report on the front page of the Italian newspaper claims that United are open to letting the 27-year-old head back to Italy.
Pogba went on to become the most expensive player in world football when he made the return to Manchester four years ago but has failed to impress and this year has been beset by injury woes.
Although the French mid-fielder has not made an appearance for United since Boxing Day due to a prevailing ankle problem that required surgery at the start of January.
The report in Italy comes after agent Mino Raiola reportedly held talks with Juventus over a summer reunion with Pogba.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner has long been linked with a departure from United, with the Frenchman nearing the exit door during the last two summers.
Also in Spain, Real Madrid have been strongly linked with a move for the 27-year-old, with boss Zinedine Zidane keen to work with him.
But reports in France at the weekend said that Raiola has made contact with the Old Lady over a move this summer.
The report says that Juventus been interested in making a move for well over a year, and Pogba is keen to hear whatever offer his former club have to tender.
