Manchester City are preparing to sign former Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba in the summer.

Etihad Stadium manager Roberto Mancini failed with a bid to take Pogba across Manchester last summer when he walked away from Old Trafford after turning down a new contract due to a lack of first-team opportunities under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Pogba chose to move to Italy to join Juventus over a switch to Manchester City and the 19-year-old hasn’t looked back with his form in Serie A earning him a regular place in the first-team at the Juventus Stadium.

But that has not deterred City from making a move to bring Pogba back to the Premier League with club executive Patrick Vieria, who also played for Juventus, urging Mancini to make a move to sign the powerful young midfielder, according to the Sunday Mirror.

Pogba, who came through the academy system at Old Trafford having been signed as a 16-year-old from Le Havre in France, played just seven times for Manchester United, and only three times in the Premier League.

Since joining Juventus last summer, the young midfielder has caught the eye playing 25 times and found the net five times.
