Manchester City have targeted Juventus star Paul Pogba if key midfielder Yaya Toure leaves the Etihad this summer, Daily Star reports.
At the end of last season Toure’s Man City future was up for debate after the club failed to give the Ivorian their wishes on his 31st birthday.
Toure is reportedly frustrated at not receiving the same acknowledgement when compared to the likes of Sergio Aguero and captain Vicent Kompany.
And it seems that Toure is looking to leave Manchester this summer, with Ligue-1 side Paris Saint-Germain ready to make move.
If the two-time Premier League winner does decide to leave, then the Man City hierarchy will turn to Paul Pogba as the ideal replacement.
After leaving neighbours Manchester United a free to Juventus, the young Frenchman has developed into one of the best all round midfielders in the game.
And although United have been linked with a move to bring back their former starlet, French paper L’Equipe stated that the Citizens have now joined the race for his signature.
However Juve have set a £60million pricetag for Pogba’s transfer, a fee likely too high for City who are currently complying with FFP regulations.
