The Ligue 1 champions have been put off by the £70 million asking price that the Bianconeri have placed on the 22-year-old. This leaves City with some hope that they could sign the highly rated youngster.

While Barca would have to wait until at least January to sign the France international due to their transfer ban and Real are expected to offer Isco as part of the deal, the Citizens may be able to offer cash. Of course this would have to be within Financial Fair Play restrictions.

Let go for free by Manchester United in 2012, Pogba has gone on to become one of the best young talents in world football. This season he has ten goals and five assists in 34 matches for Juve, helping the Turin based side to win Serie A and the Coppa Italia, as well as get to the final of the Champions League.
