Manchester City are planning a cash plus Stevan Jovetic offer for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, according to reports from the Daily Star.

The French enforcer – a former Manchester United player – has been earning rave reviews for his displays in Turin, where he has helped the Old Lady to claim last season’s Serie A title.

Despite him being firmly embedded in Juve’s first-team and having declared that he is happy at the club, City are hopeful hat they can lure him to the Etihad Stadium at the end of the season.

Pogba is rated at around £30m, but Manuel Pellegrini is hopeful he can drive the price down by offering Jovetic in exchange.

The Montenegrin international only arrived at City over the summer, but has been plagued by injuries.

Pellegrini has already admitted that he may sell the attacker if he does not prove himself by the end of the campaign, which has alerted Juve.

The Italians have had a January approach for the ex-Fiorentina man turned down, and are rumoured to be extremely keen to lure him back the league in which he made a huge impact.

Pogba is seen a s a priority for the Sky Blues, who are ready to spend big once again as they continue their quest to become one of Europe’s footballing superpowers.

The 2-0year-old was United player up until 18 months ago, when he left Old Trafford on a free transfer after growing frustrated at a lack of opportunities under Sir Alex Ferguson.
