Manchester City are ready to offer Paul Pogba a contract worth in excess of £300,000-per-week to reject serious interest from across Europe and become the central figure of Pep Guardiola’s new-look side, according to reports from Sport.
The France international has emerged as one of the top young midfielders on the planet since leaving Manchester United for Juventus on a free transfer in 2012.
Pogba has since scooped three Serie A titles on the spin, while demonstrating his box-to-box abilities in both domestic and Champions League football, which has alerted some of the biggest clubs on the planet.
And reports claim that Man City are among the chasing pack, with the Citizens ready to pay him £15.7m-per-year (over £300,000-per-week) on top of a club-record £74.5m transfer fee.
Guardiola is understood to have made it clear to Etihad Stadium chiefs that he wants the 23-year-old as he plots an overhaul ahead of his summer move from Bayern Munich.
