Real Madrid are reported to be the leading contenders to sign Paul Pogba, the coveted young midfielder, from Juventus.
Pogba has just recently signed a new £70,000-a-week contract with the Serie A giants lasting until June 2019 but its looking unlikely that he will see the contract through.
According to the Daily Star, the 21-year-old’s agent Mino Raiola has informed the club that his client will be looking to leave the Turin based side in the summer.
The France international is one of the most wanted men in football right now, with the top clubs desperate to land the midfielder in the next transfer window.
After joining Juventus from Manchester United back in 2012, Pogba has established himself among the very best central midfielders currently operating in the game, and as one of the top young players of his generation.

Pogba looks set to be involved in a tug of war in the summer with former club Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid all reported to be interested. It is, however, Madrid who are seemingly leading the race.
If any of the three clubs interested play him in the right position and give him the freedom he wants then he could turn out to be one of the all time greats in his position.
Where should Pogba go?
Real Madrid are unsurprisingly the favourites to sign him as they have the funds to blow the other teams out of the water. Los Blancos also have an allure like no other club.
It will be an interesting summer for Pogba and Juventus. Will he stick with the team who have moulded him into a world-class player? Or will he move on from Juventus and leave a huge hole within the centre of their midfield?
