Manchester United have been given fresh hope of re-signing Paul Pogba next summer after the Juventus midfielder's agent Mino Raiola indicated when his client would consider leaving Turin.
The Sunday Mirror reports how the 21-year-old playmaker has attracted admiring glances from a host of top European clubs, after establishing himself as one of the best players in his position in world football over the past three years in Italy.
Chelsea and Manchester City have both also been credited with an interest in the player dubbed the '100 million euro man', but they face additional competition for his signature from the likes of Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.
Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal is determined to bring the France international back to Old Trafford after Sir Alex Ferguson made the glaring mistake of letting Pogba leave the Theatre of Dreams on a free transfer in the summer of 2011.
After signing the exciting young prospect as a youth player from Le Havre in 2009, the former Manchester United boss restricted Pogba to just seven substitute appearances in the first-team, prompting a swift exit upon the expiry of his contract two years later.

That bad error in judgement could cost the Premier League giants up to £75 million if they are successful in securing his signature again, particularly after Raiola's latest transfer hint that will have alerted all of the interested parties.
"Paul is happy at Juventus but later this year or next year we will see what opportunities have been created," he said. "When the league cannot satisfy such a player then it is time to go."
Pogba is currently on course to win his third consecutive league title with Juventus, who take on Chievo in Serie 'A' at 2pm on Sunday.
