Manchester City are said to be preparing a mammoth raid for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba this summer by offering the Italians the pick of Yaya Toure, Samir Nasri, Stevan Jovetic, Aleksandar Kolarov and Edin Dzeko in part exchange, according to The Guardian.

The Frenchman is currently valued by the Italian champions at €100 million (£71.5m) and City chiefs have already flown into Turin to facilitate transfer talks.
However, with the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United all interested, City are aware that they need to offer something extraordinary in order to bring him on board this summer.
And with that in mind they have sought to offer Juve the pick of one or more of the names above, which they are willing to sacrifice to snap Pogba up.
With Toure likely to depart this summer, the 22-year-old is seen as the ideal long term replacement, and while Juve are reluctant to sell they would be willing to listen to offers around the €100m mark.
