Man City eyeing shock deal for Man Utd star

Paul Pogba news

Pogba to Man City?

Manchester City have emerged as shock contenders to land Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba this summer.

The Frenchman's deal with the Red Devils expires on June 30, and he has already made his mind up to move on.

Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain have been frequently linked, but The Mail claims that the Cityzens are also in the hunt.

No United player has crossed the divide since Carlo Tevez made the move in 2009. The Argentine lost his legacy with the club.

Pogba would hurt fan sentiments by joining City, but reports claim that it could be a genuine possibility this summer.

The Frenchman is currently on wages of around £290,000-a-week. City are likely to hand him a decent pay rise.

In comparison, Juventus are only likely to recruit him if he accepts a 50 per cent pay cut on his current salary.

Paris Saint-Germain are better placed in the pursuit, but Pogba could be tempted to stay in the Premier League.
