Man City eye amazing double swap to beat Man United

Manchester City are ready to use both Samir Nasri and Edin Dzeko as bait in a deal to beat bitter rivals Manchester United to Juventus’ Paul Pogba, according to reports from the Daily Star.

The France international is widely considered to be one of the best central midfielders in European football after breaking through in Turin – he left Old Trafford as a youngster back in 2012.

His fine showings have alerted United, who are believed to be looking at using Robin van Persie as a sweetener in a cash plus player deal.

However, City are keen to offer the Old Lady a potentially more tempting proposal, with Nasri and Dzeko both available.

It’s likely that less money will be made available by the Sky Blues, but the lure of getting two top class players – a striker and a playmaker – may appeal to the Serie A champions.
