The midfielder has become one of the most sought after players in Europe after coming to prominence with the Old Lady. This season he has helped them to the Serie A title, as well as the Coppa Italia and the final of the Champions League. This is all after the Red Devils let him go for free in 2012, a mistake they must now rue.

Real Madrid, PSG, and Manchester City are also interested in the 22-year-old, but all look set to be disappointed. The Citizens will be especially let down as they are keen to make big name signings after their trophyless campaign. They are apparently willing to pay £70 million for Pogba.

However, this is unlikely to be enough. The Blaugranas are unable to sign anyone in 2015 after breaking FIFA’s rule on signing players under the age of 18. Despite this the youngster is keen to move to the Nou Camp.
