According to The Athletic, the Frenchman received a flattering proposal from Man City who were keen on snapping him up this summer.
He gave serious contemplation to the offer, but has opted to reject the Man City deal - instead favouring the whole package offered by another club.
Real, PSG and Juve are thought to be the most contenders to land Pogba.
🚨 EXCL: Paul Pogba will not be joining Man City. 29yo seriously considered offer but opted against + his camp have told #MCFC. Favours whole package at another club: #Juve, #PSG, #RMFC currently main contenders - no final decision yet @TheAthleticUK #MUFC https://t.co/tx8kUxjLkF— David Ornstein (@David_Ornstein) May 9, 2022
The idea of Pogba potentially joining Man City split the Sky Sports studio following the Blues' win over Newcastle United last weekend.
Jamie Redknapp and Micah Richards argued it'd be a great signing for the club, while Jamie Carragher warned Guardiola from signing the 29-year-old.
He said: "I wouldn’t go anywhere near him. [City] win the league every year, they get 95-100 points every year. He doesn’t work hard enough or as much as the other players.
"If Pep could get that out of him, fantastic, there’s no doubt in his ability – no-one has ever doubted it.
"But when you see the players City have, the creative players, Phil Foden coming on, Bernardo Silva, these type of players who are brilliant players and don’t stop working, don’t stop running from minute one to minute 90.
"That’s what makes City what they are, they’re a great team, brilliant manager, great individuals."
Pogba is in his sixth season at Man United after re-signing for the club in 2016.
He's currently sidelined with an injury after picking up a knock against Liverpool, with the star midfielder expected to move on at the end of the season.
