Alfredo Pedulla reports that Pogba will likely visit Turin on “Saturday and Sunday”.
And the French international will take his medical and complete the deal.
It is said that the agreed term will be four-years with a sizeable signing-on fee.
Reports in Italy have suggested that the World Cup winner will earn a basic salary of around £150,000 a week.
Pogba will re-join the Serie A side for a second stint, 10 years after first quitting United for Italy first time round.
The midfielder spent four years in Turin between 2012 and 2016, winning four titles and two Italian Cups.
He played 177 games and scored 34 goals, with 40 assists.
And fallen giants Juve, who finished fourth last campaign, want Pogba 2.0 to resurrect their title ambitions next season.
The midfielder originally returned to Old Trafford in 2016 for a club-record fee of £89million – four years after he originally left for free.
In 233 appearances for Man Utd he recorded 39 goals and 51 assists.
The Red Devils posted a lengthy tribute when his contract ended.
Part of the statement said: “It was a low-key end to a United career that had brought so many individual high moments, so many beautiful goals, assists and pieces of skill.
“But for a boy that joined the Academy at 16 to make over 200 United appearances and lift the Youth Cup, along with two major pieces of silverware is something that should be applauded and celebrated.
“Everyone at the club would like to congratulate Paul on his successful career, and thank him for his contributions to Manchester United.
“We wish him all the best for the next steps on a remarkable journey.”
