Manchester City are reportedly looking to swoop in ahead of Barcelona and make a sensational €100m offer for Juventus and France midfielder Paul Pogba.
Bianconeri director general Beppe Marotta revealed earlier this week that the club had rejected a bid from Barcelona, although the two clubs are expected to renegotiate next summer for the Frenchman.
However, City are understood to want to take advantage of the breakdown in talks by coming in with an even bigger offer to tempt the Italian giants into selling now with Chelsea also never too far from rumours involving Pogba.
Corriere dello Sport, as reported by Football Italia, insist that the Premier League outfit are now looking to make their move sooner rather than later and are hopeful that they can at least tempt Juve into starting discussions.
While it is expected that Barca will be back next year for the French international, there has been no indication as to where the midfielder would prefer to move, if at all.
Pogba helped Juve to the Champions League final last season as well as winning another domestic title, but with Andrea Pirlo, Carlos Tevez and potentially Arturo Vidal moving on, the ‘Old Lady’ will need to rebuild.
