Manchester City could pip their city rivals Manchester United to the signature of 21 year old Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.
The Sun are reporting that the Etihad Stadium club are interested in bringing in the French international.
While Yaya Toure has improved his form recently, he was criticised earlier in the season for his poor performances.
At 31 years old, he no longer represents a long term option for Manuel Pellegrini’s side, and as a result, City are chasing Pogba as his replacement.
This will come as something of a blow to Man Utd, who were repeatedly linked with a move for Pogba in the summer.
The Juve star began his career with Man Utd, but left after failing to receive any first team opportunities under Alex Ferguson.
He would likely relish the opportunity to join Man Utd’s rivals, especially if he could contribute to them finishing above the Old Trafford club in the Premier League for the third season of the last four.
