The French international is one of the most in-demand players in world football at the moment, having shone as an outstanding young talent in his time in Turin.

Having failed to make the grade in a first spell in the Premier League with Manchester United, Pogba is now wanted back in English football with both Chelsea and City, who could be willing to spend big to land him this summer, according to the Daily Star.

Juventus hope to bring in a transfer fee of around £75m for the 22-year-old, while his wage packet could be a staggering £320,000 per week on a five-year deal, which would make him the highest paid player at either Stamford Bridge or the Etihad Stadium if he did move.

It is thought that Paris Saint-Germain currently lead the chase for Pogba’s signature.
