Manchester United have made Paul Pogba their number one transfer target for the summer window according to the Telegraph.
The French midfielder has emerged as one of the most in-demand stars in Europe, and has been linked with a whole host of top clubs including Real Madrid and Chelsea.
However it seems as though it's Manchester United are the first to declare their hand in the race to sign the 22-year-old, who walked away from Old Trafford on a free transfer back in 2012.

The Telegraph say that Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is willing to pay £60 million in order to take him back in what could be another summer of serious spending.
He splashed over £150 million on the likes of Angel di Maria, Ander Herrera, and Daley Blind, and the Telegraph suggest that there could be a host of new arrivals later this year, led by Pogba.
The Juventus ace has been heavily linked with Chelsea in the past, who may have something to say about Manchester United's interest. Pogba recently penned a new deal with Juventus which is supposed to keep him at the club until 2019, although his agent Mino Raiola has hinted a transfer could be on the cards sooner rather than later.
Paul Pogba would be the perfect fit for Manchester United, but whether he would be willing to return is another matter. He left under a cloud having not been given the game time he thought he deserved, and now he's a star at Juventus may want to go elsewhere.
However money talks and while Raiola said earlier this week that Pogba could fetch a fee of up to €130 million if he does move, Manchester United will be confident of doing business in the region of £60 million.
