United braced for Inter fight over French prodigy

Manchester United starlet Paul Pogba is set to receive an offer from Inter Milan, according to reports.

The Daily Mirror claims the 18-year-old Frenchman has emerged on the Italian giants' radar in recent months, and could be lured to the San Siro with an offer of first team opportunities.

That same issue has proved to be a stumbling block at Old Trafford, and despite the best efforts of Sir Alex Ferguson and his team, a new contract is yet to be agreed between the two parties.



Pogba's contract with Manchester United is set to expire at the end of the season, leaving the teenager free to talk to other clubs across Europe from January ahead of a possible free transfer in the summer.

The Red Devils landed the talented midfielder from Le Havre in 2009 amidst allegations of 'poaching' from the Ligue 2 outfit.

But after two years at the club, Manchester United fans have had few chances to see the player at senior level, with a substitute appearance against Crystal Palace in the Carling Cup one of the rare glimpses offered in the first team.

Despite impressing, Ferguson has been keen to keep the player under-wraps in a low-profile capacity at the club, but with interest from Arsenal and Manchester City as well as the Italian outfit, time appears to be running out for the English champions to keep the player.

Ferguson could point to Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverley as players who waited for their time before breaking into the Manchester United first team, but the young Frenchman's patience is reportedly wearing thin as he looks to progress his career further.
