Manchester City and Chelsea are reportedly ready to offer Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba a £300,000-a-week deal to come to the Premier League, according to the Daily Star on Sunday.
The 22-year-old looks set to be one of the most in-demand players this summer, with the Premier League duo, as well as Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid, all keen to prise him away from the Serie A champions.
The France international has previously described future Citizens boss Pep Guardiola as a “football icon”, which could put City in pole position if they can cough up the huge asking price, which is said to be around £80 million.
The arrival of Guardiola at the Etihad is sure to see the club spend big, but Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich may have something to say about that, whoever the Blues’ new manager may be.
Pogba has made 166 appearances in all competitions for Juve, scoring 30 goals.
