Just two years ago, Sir Alex Ferguson was so desperate to get his hands clean of youngster Paul Pogba, who causing trouble in Manchester United's youth system, that he gave him a free transfer.

But the Frenchman has gone out to Juventus with a point to prove and has not only rekindled the interest of the Red Devils, but has also sparked attraction from Premier League leaders, Chelsea, according to the Daily Express.

Some great goals, slick skills and a magical midfield presence has effectively built up the profile of Pogba and consequently earned him a well deserved place on the 23-man shortlist for this year's Ballon d'Or award.

Elsewhere, a threatening performance over in Brazil at the World Cup in the summer saw the Frenchman awarded with the Best Young Player of the tournament award.

And to put the cherry on the top of the cake for the 21-year-old, to his greatest pleasure, he has seen his former club Manchester United come crawling back whilst league leaders Chelsea have also entered the equation.

Despite an original £55 million price tag being placed on the midfielder, Juventus will be expecting a fee of approximately £70 million in order to release their talented wonderkid.

With both clubs determined to concentrate entirely on their Premier League success during busy January period and throughout the campaign, it is expected that the battle between the Red Devils and the Blues will commence next summer.

Whilst playing in the Serie A, he has gained thorough experience along with scoring 15 goals in 75 appearances for the Italian giants.
