Report: Manchester City make Pogba their priority

There are press reports that Manchester City won't take no for an answer in their attempts to sign Juventus star Paul Pogba.

The future of Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba is a constant source of speculation and Manchester City are emerging as the likeliest suitors.

Pogba has become one of Serie A's top talents since being allowed to leave Manchester United for free, an opportunity that Juventus snapped up.

While Juventus are dominant in Italy, they haven't managed to wield the same power on the European stage and Pogba may be tempted to leave for a bigger hitter.

Manchester United, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have been linked with Pogba in the past, but his reported £40 million price tag could be prohibitive to even the biggest of clubs.

But the latest reports from BeinSport suggest that Pogba's representatives have already began talking to Manchester City directors.

Juventus are said to be extremely reluctant to let Pogba leave, but the Old Lady's hand may be forced should a massive offer arrive and the player insist he wants to leave.

Still only 21, Pogba has insisted that he wants to follow in the footsteps of Zinedine Zidane and become the best in the world and few would bet against that.

While Juventus may command a large transfer fee if they are to sell Pogba in 2015, it could pale in comparison to what he may be worth later in his career.
