The 22 year old left City’s local rivals Man United in 2012 and has matured into one of the most talented youngsters in the game.

City will offer £60m for Pogba, topping Man United’s £59.7m record purchase of winger Angel di Maria last summer, and Manuel Pellegrini may well see the midfield powerhouse as a possible long term replacement for veteran Yaya Toure.
