The 21 year old former Man United man has been identified by the Premier League title holders as an ideal replacement for Ivorian Yaya Toure.

Pogba has proven a massive success since completing his move to Turin in July 2012, making an instant impact, and helping the club to back to back Serie A triumphs in his first two seasons in Italy.

The rangy midfielder is arguably the hottest young prospect in world football and as such it’s not a huge surprise that it would take a princely sum to lure him away from Juventus.

The fact that the Italian giants paid just a compensation fee for the player may well make it all the more difficult for Juventus to ignore an astronomical offer for Pogba.

The £70m fee mentioned by this source will smash the £59.7m Man United paid for Angel di Maria, the current British transfer record, and would represent a real statement of intent by Man City.
