Chelsea and Man City to go head-to-head for £44m midfield star

Chelsea and Manchester City are leading the race to sign Juventus star Paul Pogba, who is also a target for Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, and Real Madrid, according to reports from

Pogba has been heavily linked with a move away from the Juventus Stadium in the past few transfer windows, and the France international is reportedly keen on returning to the English Premier League.

This will give Chelsea and City a huge boost in their attempts to lure over the midfielder, who has become one of the most coveted players on the planet.

The 21-year-old left Manchester United in the summer of 2012, pointing to his limited game-time at Old Trafford as his reason for departing.

Juve snapped him up for free and Pogba developed into a world-class box-to-box midfielder, and could now be set to depart for a fee of at least £44million.

Premier League champions Man City see Pogba as the perfect player to replace Yaya Toure, while Blues manager Jose Mourinho is a big fan of his physical yet technical style of play.

Man United are also keen on bringing him back to Old Trafford, but will find it difficult after the Red Devils restricted his game-time before his move to Serie A.
