Soccer: Man Utd 'willing to pay 50 million' for Juve's Pogba (ANSA) - London, January 14 - Manchester United manager David Moyes has reportedly offered Juventus General Manager Beppe Marotta 50 million euros to buy back 20-year-old French midfielder Paul Pogba, who left the Old Trafford 18 months ago, according to British media reports.

Moyes met Marotta after Juventus's 4-1 win over Cagliari on Sunday and reportedly he raised the possibility of signing either Pogba and Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal, or both.

Sources close to Marotta said he is likely to resist approaches for Pogba and Vidal during the January window but could be more receptive to overtures this summer, the Daily Mail reported. Manchester United's owners are reportedly providing Moyes with a 120-million-euro fund to rebuild the team as he sees fit.

Meanwhile the team could lose Serbian defender Nemanja Vidic, who is out of contract at the end of the season and is being courted by both Roberto Mancini's Galatasaray and Claudio Ranieri's Monaco.
