United duo linked with City move

Published Add your comment

Manchester United youngsters Paul Pogba and Ravel Morrison are reportedly on the radar of Manchester City.

With both of the midfield duo out of contract in the summer they have been attracting plenty of interest, and the likes of Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain have been linked with respective approaches.

But, according to, City have made discreet enquires about the teenagers, and could make formal bids this month.

Morrison has already been the subject of an offer from Newcastle, but Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed that this was rejected by Manchester United.

The United boss also claimed that the 18-year-old midfielder had priced himself out of a new contract, but Morrison responded to say he had yet to receive an offer for the club.

Pogba, meanwhile, is also yet to be convinced that his future lies at Old Trafford, having made only three first-team appearances for the Barclays Premier League champions.

Ferguson, though, is desperate to retain the services of the French starlet although, he said last month, that Pogba's agent has been making any potential deal difficult.

“He's got an agent who's obviously become a bit difficult but we're negotiating with this agent and we want the boy to stay,” he explained.

“But it's down to the individual also."
